His father was everyone’s insurance man in the old days, a distinguished, handsome, respectable businessman.
I often met Mario, his son, same respectable last name, at Happy Hour, then I lost track.
He surfaced in April.
I met him for coffee, he had none, he spoke with intensity and urgency.
He wanted me to write about Captive Insurance, he said it was super lucrative for Bermuda, and Cayman, and should be a good opportunity for Aruba. Since I did not know much about the subject, I did not write about it, but Mario insisted writing to me 3 times, in April, 4 times in May, 8 times in June and 13 times in July, then the messages stopped.
He wrote about Food Source Dwindling, Climate Change, Circular Economy, Tech Havens, AI, Risk Management, and the fact that in strong winds, a construction project at Pos Abou in front of Li Yuan Bar & Restaurant, had employees working without a fall-arrest system which was a very unsafe practice.
Aruba is missing out on all this opportunity, he urged me, Aruba block-chain agriculture captive insurance IS the sustainable solution to address climate change risk exposure.
Do you see the geo-political value and key position of Aruba as Captive Business destination?
I did not answer because I did not know the answer.
The global insurance premiums are estimated around $5 trillion. The Aruba block-chain captive insurance project has the potential to attract captive business, he stressed, but you know dear reader, I had no knowledge in that area.
The last I heard from him he said he had a meeting with a neuropsychologist in order to start with the development of a neuro algorithm for the Aruba smart captive insurance program. WOW.
Then he wrote a post about the Abused Aruba Men. Abused Men of Aruba?!
And that was his last correspondence. May he rest in peace.
