Captive conference aims to elevate’
Registration is now open for the 15th Bermuda Captive Conference to be held on June 10 to 12 at the Fairmont Southampton hotel.
The three day-conference, Bermuda’s largest industry event, this year has adopted the theme “Elevate”, encouraging risk managers to consider the many ways captives can contain costs and manage coverage, whether for a Fortune 500 corporation or mid-sized business.
“Our 2019 theme is an energising call to action,” said conference chairman Michael Parrish. “We hope to connect with both risk managers who may not have considered captive insurance before, and owners of existing captive insurers to demonstrate how they can innovatively tackle new and emerging risks facing any size of business in today’s corporate environment.
“We’re inviting delegates to ‘elevate their perspective, elevate their network, elevate their captive’.”
The conference features educational sessions, keynote speakers, social activities, and networking events. Incorporating a trade floor showcasing support services and organisations, the conference attracts captive insurance managers, brokers and service-providers, corporate risk managers, and captive owners.
Last year, more than 800 attendees registered from the US, Canada, Latin America, and the UK, as well as Bermuda, organisers said, driving total hotel room nights close to 1,000. Notably, organisers said, the conference attracted more captive owners and risk managers than ever before.
“We’re looking to build on the phenomenal success that’s been established over the past 14 years and we expect to have a strong attendance again,” Mr Parrish said, adding the new conference website streamlines the registration process for sponsors and attendees.
“Our agenda will examine innovative programmes that can be developed in a captive, and topics will include cutting-edge issues such as insurtech, cybersecurity, autonomous driving, global employee benefits, and the shared economy.”
The early-bird registration deadline is March 31.
Bermuda is home to more than 700 captives generating about $40 billion in annual gross written premiums in 2018, according to the Bermuda Monetary Authority.
