The annual summit brings together more than 100 risk management professionals including: current and prospective captive owners, captive managers, corporate insurance leaders and more. BIBA has partnered with the summit since its creation. The summit focuses on assisting those just starting out in captives or looking to fine-tune their captives strategy. It offers 18 interactive sessions, eight scheduled networking opportunities, three exclusive panels and over twelve hours of learning.  Featured speakers on the programme include: Patrick Walker, senior manager, group risk financing, Rio Tinto; Graham Sanderson, regional director, risk management, Vancouver Island Health Authority; Lynn Tenerowicz, director, risk management, Baystate Health; Frank Naus, vice president, research, Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation; David Platt, director, insurance risk, Encana Services Company: and Todd Henderson, senior director, risk engineering & insurance, SNC Lavalin. Henderson Holmes, executive director, BIBA, said: “We have watched this forum grow from strength to strength over the years and it has asserted itself as the authoritative forum on captive insurance business in Canada.  “Given the fact that Barbados is a major domicile for Canadian captive insurance companies we have supported this conference over many years now and will continue to do so into the foreseeable future.” Holmes added: “It makes great sense for us to support the efforts of the Canadian Captives Summit. Given, the long history of business and diplomatic relations between Barbados and Canada and our reputation for being able to facilitate the business interest of Canadian firms seeking alternative risk management solutions.”
