Captives conference to focus on ESG
Maura McGuigan, a senior director at AM Best, is to be among the panellists for a discussion about using captives for environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives during the Bermuda Captive Conference next month.
Joining Ms McGuigan on the panel will be Sherman Taylor, head of capital markets at Ocorian’s Bermuda office, and Séadna Kirwan, risk advisory director for Aon Bermuda.
The conference will be held September 12-14 at Hamilton Princess and Beach Club, and also held virtually.
Ms McGuigan is a senior director of criteria at AM Best. Her team is responsible for the development, testing and review of Best’s credit rating methodology and the related criteria procedures used within the rating analytics, as well as for the development of new criteria.
The panel discussion will address the possibility of captives covering uninsured risk in the ESG space and how parent company ESG initiatives could affect captive structures and operations, as well as Bermuda's responsibility in the ESG framework.
The three-day conference is Bermuda’s largest and longest-running industry event, and attracts more than 800 delegates.
