Back to the Bermuda Captive Conference
The Bermuda Captive Conference, the island’s largest and longest-running industry event, is returning to the live stage in September.
Registration is open now for the hybrid event, which will be held from September 12 to 14 at the Hamilton Princess, and mark the Bermuda captive industry's 60th anniversary.
Now in its 18th year, the BCC continues to examine trends in the global captive market, bringing together industry professionals for thought leadership, education and connectivity.
The conference will feature educational sessions, keynote speakers, interactive discussions and opportunities to reconnect and network.
For the first time since 2019, organisers said, delegates will have the opportunity to return to a live event format, alongside corporate risk managers and captive owners, insurance managers, insurance brokers and service providers.
The event will also be streamed virtually via an interactive online platform.
This year’s theme is Fusion, celebrating the momentum and synergy of the newly launched Bermuda Captive Network that the conference now falls under.
The new organisation brings expanded membership and more diverse thought leadership to the table, and will offer to the conference cutting-edge panel discussions with a wide variety of dynamic speakers.
The conference will feature interviews from a range of captive owners, as they reflect on the experience, depth and innovation of Bermuda’s captive industry.
The conference opens with a kick-off session to celebrate the six-decade milestone, reflecting on Bermuda’s growth and impact in the captive industry across the last 60 years.
Other sessions will include a discussion on the post-pandemic landscape, risk management and the cost of capital, exploring legacy cell issues, reinsurance partnership with captives, a deep-dive on the Latin American markets and a review of BEPS, LOC issues and ESG opportunities.
On September 13, conference chairwoman Leslie Robinson will host the Captive Hall of Fame awards, recognising captive owner recipients from the last three years.
The ceremony will also include the announcement of the 2022 Fred Reiss Lifetime Achievement Award, an accolade created to celebrate Bermuda figures who have had an outstanding impact on the captive insurance industry.
Ms Robinson, senior vice-president, head of underwriting and claims, Willis Towers Watson Management, said: “The commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Bermuda captive industry holds extra significance for both the Fred Reiss Lifetime Achievement award and Bermuda’s Captive Hall of Fame awards.
“These awards were created to reflect the evolution and impact of Bermuda’s globally important insurance market, highlighting the spirit of innovation which saw the world’s first captives established on the island in the early 1960s.
“We extend our sincere thanks to these longstanding Bermuda captive owners, and we also recognise the committed contributions that Bermuda’s industry titans have made to help build and grow Bermuda’s captive industry into the mature domicile we see today.”
