The Bermuda Insurance Institute

The roots of the Bermuda Insurance Institute (BII) go back to 1970 when the Bermuda Insurance Diploma Association (BIDA) was formed by 12 leading insurers. These leaders envisioned future growth in the Bermuda market, and recognized that there was a need for a well trained work force that would be ready to fill some of the needs presented by the expansion. Through the collaborative effort of the executives of these leading insurers, a movement began to ensure that people involved in the Bermuda insurance market, and those that were interested in pursuing careers in insurance had the opportunity to study insurance locally.
