June 11, 2018 | 0 Comments

A record 845 delegates to date have registered for this week’s Bermuda Captive Conference as the island’s largest industry event kicks off its 14th year today [June 11] at the Fairmont Southampton.

The three-day conference, running June 11–13, brings captive insurance owners, risk managers, captive managers, sponsors, and vendors from the United States, Canada, Latin America, and the United Kingdom, in addition to Bermuda’s own industry representatives at the Southampton resort.

Moderated panels and roundtables will focus on hot topics like insurtech, cyber-risk, climate change and healthcare liability, as well as the industry’s growing diversity around risk types, products and talent.

“We’ve had a terrific response to this year’s event and we expect the numbers to climb even higher over the next few days,” said Conference Chair Mike Parrish.

“We’re offering dynamic speakers and a full, interactive agenda that should prove very informative—as well as lots of social events for delegates to get the most out of their Bermuda visit. We’re looking forward to a busy three days.”

The conference opens this morning [June 11] with a morning of social activities, including the choice of a glass-bottom boat tour, golf tournament, or fitness walk along Bermuda’s South Shore dunes and beaches.

The trade floor, featuring 47 booths showcasing industry support services, related organisations and other vendors, opens at noon, followed by the first sessions.

Deputy Premier Walter Roban officially opens the conference Tuesday morning, when new inductees into the Captive Hall of Fame and the winner of this year’s Fred Reiss Lifetime Achievement Award will be honoured.

Eleven companies with a quarter-century commitment to the Bermuda market will be recognised, and industry veteran Brian Hall, a former director and president of Johnson & Higgins whose career spanned more than four decades on the island will receive the third Fred Reiss Award.

With “Diversity” as its 2018 theme, the conference features human-rights visionary Derreck Kayongo as keynote lunch speaker on Tuesday, and Hamilton Group CFO Jonathan Reiss as industry speaker Wednesday. Agenda sessions will explore the topic, including diversity on corporate boards, the perspective of millennials, and female viewpoints on leadership.

A first-ever community component of the conference will see participation by Friends of Hospice, the Bermuda Human Rights Commission, and the Bermuda Insurance Institute—10 of whose students have been offered free passes to network and attend educative sessions. All three non-profits will have booths where delegates can donate, meet charity representatives, and learn about the work they do.

Bermuda is the top global captive jurisdiction, home to almost 740 captive insurance companies supporting primarily Fortune 500 corporations in the US and generating over $55 billion in annual gross written premiums.
