Bermuda Captive Conference unveils hot topics for 2016


Cyber risk, energy trends, collateralised reinsurance and Canada and Latin American opportunities are likely to be hot topics during this year’s Bermuda Captive Conference.

The conference, which takes place June 13-15, is expected to attract more than 700 delegates.

Joe Flowers, an expert in healthcare, genomics and biotech, has been selected as keynote speaker. He will explore the future of healthcare and the impact of technology, pharmaceuticals and diagnostic techniques.

“Our speakers and panelists will be discussing topical and emerging issues such as cyber risk, oil and gas risk, Canada, Latin America, insurance-linked securities, taxation treatments, legal issues, and recent claims and investment trends,” said conference chair David Gibbons, managing partner at PwC Bermuda.

According to the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA), Bermuda-based captives support an estimated 25 percent of the American medical insurance and reinsurance market, and a growing number have originated from Canada and Latin America in recent years.

“We plan to capitalise on these trends with a compelling agenda that will attract, educate and engage delegates at this year’s event,” said Gibbons.
