• The principal benefit of Solvency II equivalence is that Bermuda’s commercial insurers, reinsurers and insurance groups will not be disadvantaged when competing for and underwriting business in Europe. Additionally, being an early adopter of Solvency II has brought certainty to the future status of commercial reinsurers operating from Bermuda.

• Captive insurance and reinsurance business has played an important role in the development of Bermuda’s insurance industry. According to Marsh, a Global Leader in Insurance Broking and Risk Management, there were around 7,000 captive insurance and reinsurance companies worldwide in 2015, with the US solely accounting for 3,000.

• The government is planning to increase payroll tax from 5% to 6% during 2016–2017; this will negatively impact low-income workers.

• Healthcare captives have always been a big business in Bermuda, and currently account for 10% of the captive business in the country.
