Our Industry Support
Bermuda Insurance Institute
Our company has been a member of the Bermuda Insurance Institute (BII) since our predecessor company, Endurance Specialty Holdings, Ltd., was founded in 2001. The Bermuda Insurance Institute is dedicated to providing educational and networking opportunities to those working in the insurance industry as well as those seeking training to pursue a career in the industry. We encourage our employees to be active participants in the organization, including serving as instructors for professional insurance education courses offered by the BII.
Our company and our employees are also active participants in many professional organizations that provide training, networking and certification in the insurance industry. Our executives have volunteered their time and expertise in leadership roles in a number of associations including the Bermuda Chapter of Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters, the International Association of Claim Professionals, the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers and the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management.
Our Commitment to Bermuda
Headquartered in Bermuda, Sompo International is an active sponsor of many local Bermuda organizations that are critical to maintaining the island’s environment, culture and youth development programs. These include the Bermuda National Trust, focused on preserving natural, architectural and historic treasures on the island; the Bermuda Dance Theater, and the Bermuda National Gallery, which houses the nation’s national art collection. We are actively engaged in a multiyear commitment to the ABC Football School and Valencia Club, one of the largest football franchises in Europe, which will educate local coaches and provide exposure for talented Bermuda athletes to high-quality training and recruiting opportunities.
Sompo International and its predecessor company Endurance have been proud members of Business Bermuda since January 2004. The organization promotes Bermuda’s business offerings both on the island and around the world, working to attract growth in foreign currency earnings and employment opportunities to Bermuda.
Bermuda Zoological Society
Our company was the lead contributor to the Bermuda Zoological Society’s educational and conservation outreach vessel, the 45-foot Endurance, which was launched in 2008. Serving as both a floating classroom and research vessel, the Endurance provides practical marine field research programs to local high school students and connects the local community to Bermuda’s natural environment.
