Appleby Bermuda Attending the Highly Anticipated Ocean Risk Summit
Partner Tammy Richardson-Augustus and Associate Matthew Carr are attending the highly anticipated Ocean Risk Summit in Bermuda on the 8 to 10 May. The Summit will feature prominent speakers providing expert analysis, data and innovative tools to identify potential exposures to ocean risk. The Summit will examine the challenges and risks posed by ocean change and identify the opportunities it presents for innovative approaches to building resilience and mitigating its effects through applied solutions.
Bermuda is in a unique position to highlight ocean risk and take a leading role on behalf of other small nations as both a centre for marine science and a hub for the re/insurance sector.
The dynamic and evolving energy and natural resources sector has seen a rapid rise in its public profile in recent years, as affordable energy, security of supply and climate change concerns have risen up the political agenda.
