David Gibbons, Captive Insurance Leader, PwC Bermuda, said, “This year we reflect on Bermuda’s significant impact in the captive industry across the last six decades.

“PwC has been there since the industry’s beginnings and our dedicated team of actuaries, tax, compliance and accounting professionals now work with over 150 captives to bring innovative solutions for captive optimisation.”

The spokesperson said, “Danielle Moniz, senior manager, PwC Bermuda, served as chair of the BCC Agenda & Speaker Committee.”

Ms. Moniz said, “Using Captives for ESG Initiatives is one of the discussion topics at this year’s conference. Sessions will explore the possibility of using captive insurance to mitigate climate change or uninsured risk. For example, captives can develop protection gap solutions for climate risks and consider insurance of transition risk.”

The spokesperson said, “Crystal Pittendrigh, Tax Director in PwC’s team of captive specialists, is speaking on the panel Navigating BEPS 2.0 and US Tax Reform.

“This session will include:

  • Updates and refresher on latest considerations in the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting [BEPS] Pillar 2 initiative, including a basic overview on how the framework is structured;
  • An update on recent developments in the tax space including specific implementation roadblocks, applications to the captive industry and what’s coming next.

Ms. Pittendrigh said, “It is as important as ever for captive owners to stay in touch with their tax teams and/or tax advisors as there are new local and global tax changes on the horizon. We are always happy to get in touch with captive owners and assist with a “health check” from a tax perspective.”
