Record number of delegates at Bermuda Captive Conference

The Bermuda Captive Conference, running June 11-13 at the Fairmont Southampton, has registered a record 845 delegates, attracting captive 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.

“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.”

Deputy premier Walter Roban will present the 11 new inductees in the Captive Hall of Fame, along with the winner of this year's Fred Reiss Lifetime Achievement Award, Brian Hall.

Diversity is a big theme at the 2018 conference, with s 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, too, including diversity on corporate boards, the perspective of millennials, and female viewpoints on leadership.

The conference will also be participated 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 educational sessions.

Captive International will be reporting live from this event.
