The CEO of the Bermuda Stock Exchange (BSX) Greg Wojciechowski, a well-known figure in the ILS market given the dominance of the BSX in playing host to catastrophe bond and other insurance-linked security (ILS) listings, has been appointed to the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) Board of Directors.
Wojciechowski, who has been President and Chief Executive Officer of the Bermuda Stock Exchange (BSX) for the past 15 years, a period of time during which the Exchange has become the leading place for ILS instrument listings, joined the BDA Board this month.
“On behalf of my fellow directors, I am delighted to welcome Greg to the Board,” commented BDA Chairman Kiernan Bell on the appointment. “He has impeccable credentials and highly relevant experience and knowledge as CEO of the BSX, and is one of the jurisdiction’s finest ambassadors. We could not be more pleased to have him join us in our work to empower Bermuda’s economy, encourage inward investment, and promote Bermuda’s reputation globally.”
Wojciechowski, a Bermudian also serves as Chairman of Bermuda’s Financial Intelligence Agency and ILS Bermuda Ltd., the industry body that seeks to drive ILS innovation on the island, and also sits on the Board of Directors of the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE).
“I’m delighted to join the Board of the BDA and work with my fellow directors to drive forward the agency’s goals. Hopefully my business-development experience at the BSX will add a beneficial perspective,” he explained. “The BDA plays an essential role in our jurisdiction’s outreach to attract more business to the country, a mission that impacts all of us. I’m proud to help engage other corporate stakeholders to support the critical work BDA is doing for our domestic economy.”
Wojciechowski’s leadership has propelled the 46-year-old BSX to a central role in the development of Bermuda’s domestic capital market and helped to bring global capital to the island and its markets, particularly in the insurance-linked securities and cat bond space.
The BDA is an independent, public-private partnership that aims to develop business opportunities for Bermuda, through fostering connections between the Bermuda government and industry, attracting foreign partners, and initiatives designed to make doing business on the island simpler.
