World Captive Forum 2018

This year's Business Insurance World Captive Forum is set for January 31–February 2 at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort and Spa in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Now in its 27th year, the forum will cover captive solutions for new and emerging risks. Recognized for its valuable educational content, the conference is geared toward providing cutting-edge information to risk managers, benefits managers, and financial executives whose organizations currently insure their risks in a captive or are exploring captive formation.

The meeting draws a diverse group of captive owners, those considering captive formation, captive managers, service providers, investment managers, reinsurers, domicile regulators and officials, and brokers specializing in captive insurance. The setting provides exceptional and meaningful networking and business opportunities for all attendees.

As in years past, the agenda is packed with leading industry experts who will cover an array of current topics, including captive fundamentals, recent regulatory developments, Brexit, base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS), the impact of recent storms Irma and Maria, controlling costs, risk structuring, pooling in micro-captives, reinsurance, operations and management, growing and improving captives, hot topics, and other provocative subjects.

Register and learn more. Captive owners and prospective captive owners qualify for complimentary registration. 

Following is a list of conference sessions that will be presented on three tracks: General, Property/Casualty, and Benefits. See the expert speaker roster on the Business Insurance website for the speaker lineup.
