Lloyd’s, leading insurance market for insurance and reinsurance, has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA). This agreement signifies a commitment to collaborative efforts in supporting, developing, and sharing knowledge and expertise within the international insurance market.

Through this MoU, Lloyd’s and the BMA will jointly address and efficiently navigate regulatory developments, seek opportunities for collaboration with the Lloyd’s Lab innovation programmes, and deliver educational training and remote learning initiatives via the Lloyd's Academy. These initiatives will benefit market participants both in Bermuda and across Lloyd’s extensive global network.

Additionally, the MoU aims to enhance market access for Lloyd’s syndicates in Bermuda, align regulatory standards between the entities, and foster innovation within the insurance sector. This collaboration will strengthen the regulatory framework, boost confidence among market participants, and contribute to the overall stability and growth of the international insurance market. Other recent MOUs include Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism, to launch an insurtech accelerator.

Through the MoU, Lloyd’s and the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA) will also join forces to promote and implement a reinsurance theme for Cohort 14 of the acclaimed Lloyd’s Lab Accelerator programme. Additionally, they will explore opportunities for collaboration across the broader spectrum of initiatives within the Lloyd’s Lab ecosystem. This includes working together on the Lab Challenge programme, ICX (Insurance Collaboration Exchange), Launchpad, and Futureminds, as well as integrating efforts with the BMA’s regulatory sandbox and innovation hub.

Key facts
  • In simple terms, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is a formal agreement between two or more parties that outlines their intentions to work together on specific projects or initiatives.
  • Unlike a contract, an MoU is usually not legally binding.
  • It serves as a way to document mutual understanding and goodwill, helping to ensure that everyone is on the same page before moving forward with detailed plans or formal contracts.

Dawn Miller, newly appointed Chief Commercial Officer of Lloyd’s and CEO of Lloyd’s Americas says: ‘‘I’m thrilled to be in Bermuda today for the signing of this agreement, which further strengthens our commitment made in March to closely collaborate and align on sharing risk expertise between the world’s two major insurance and reinsurance hubs.

"This joint agreement will ensure we share the knowledge and expertise needed to deliver the products and solutions to tackle our customer’s challenges and support the growth ambitions of our markets in the years to come.”

Craig Swan, CEO of the Bermuda Monetary Authority adds"The BMA is pleased to announce that we will continue our shared commitment to driving innovation and excellence in the insurance industry. This MOU highlights the importance of building regulatory relationships between international markets that foster best practices and strengthen risk-based approaches to tackling global challenges. Through this joint agreement, the BMA and Lloyd’s establish an environment where education, collaboration and training play a critical role in helping to shape the future of the financial services industry.”
