Economy: International business, which consists primarily of insurance and other financial services, is the real bedrock of Bermuda’s economy, consistently accounting for about 85% of the island’s GDP. Tourism is the country’s second largest industry, accounting for about 5% of Bermuda’s GDP but a much larger share of employment.
