The Bermuda Captive Conference Announces 2 Keynote Speakers

BCC Keynote Speakers
April 09, 2019

Keynote speakers at this year's Bermuda Captive Conference will be YouTube comedian Tripp Crosby and Executive Chair of the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA) Jeremy Cox. Now in its 15th year, Bermuda's conference will be held from June 10–12 at the Fairmont Southampton.

Incorporating a full slate of moderated panel discussions, networking, and social opportunities, plus a trade floor showcasing support services and organizations, the event annually attracts more than 800 captive insurance managers, brokers and service providers, corporate risk managers, and captive owners.

Mr. Crosby, a filmmaker, comedian, and host, is widely known as the director of Tripp and Tyler, a YouTube sketch comedy duo he stars in with fellow funnyman Tyler Stanton. Their best-known sketch, the workplace comedy "A Conference Call in Real Life," has gained a viral internet following.

As the BMA's executive chair, Mr. Cox has overall responsibility for all supervisory activities conducted by the BMA, including the supervision of banks, trust companies, investment businesses, insurance companies, and the board of directors.

"We're thrilled to be able to announce this year's two diverse keynote speakers, both of whom we know will attract and engage audiences," said Conference Chair Michael Parrish. "We look forward to welcoming Tripp to Bermuda, and we are also very honored to have Jeremy address our delegates during this, the BMA's 50th-anniversary year."

The BMA said this year's conference theme, "Elevate," encourages risk managers to consider the many ways captives can contain costs and manage coverage, whether for a Fortune 500 corporation or midsized business.

Bermuda is the premier captive insurance jurisdiction, home to more than 700 captive companies generating about $40 billion in annual gross written premiums. The sector recorded continued growth in 2018, registering 19 new entities, according to the BMA.

March 31 is the early-bird registration deadline for the conference.
