Bermuda targets LatAm in latest captive webinar

Bermuda has targeted Latin American corporations in its latest webinar on the benefits of Bermuda-based captive insurance.

The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) will host the hour-long webinar which is scheduled for 1 pm Bermuda time on April 27 and will be conducted entirely in Spanish.

Panellists will look at how Latin American companies can “reap the substantial advantages of establishing a Bermuda captive insurance company to self-insure a variety of industry needs and risks—from cyber and healthcare to employee benefits”.

Giulianna Molero Solari, manager, captive insurance, PwC Bermuda, will moderate the panel and deliver a case study.

Other panellists include Andres Carmona, finance manager, Marsh, and Eduardo Fox, manager, LatAm global & corporate/commercial & trusts Sectors, Appleby.

The webinar will also look at what a captive is and how to incorporate it and Bermuda’s regulatory, tax and legal considerations.

“Over the past year, the BDA has conducted several roadshows throughout the LatAm region and we’ve seen a lot of follow-up interest in Bermuda,” said Jereme Ramsay, BDA business development manager for the risk sector.

“This webinar is a great way to reiterate the Bermuda message, and highlight our market strengths as a captive and reinsurance leader.”
