Conferences, Webinars, and Events
The International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) has opened registration for its virtual 27th Annual Conference scheduled for December 3–4, 2020. The theme of this year's conference is "Sustainable Insurance: Emerging Risks, Trends, and Opportunities." The conference will include discussions on the insurance protection gap and climate risk management.
The Vermont Captive Insurance Association (VCIA) will hold its 2021 annual conference as an online event due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The VCIA said it determined that a virtual event was the best way to make its 2021 conference accessible to all who wish to participate.
Like businesses in other industries, many construction industry companies can benefit from captive insurance, particularly in the current hardening market, according to one captive expert. For those who understand how much risk they're willing to take on, the captive insurance approach can provide both insurance program and financial control.
As the traditional commercial insurance market continues to harden and more small-to-midsize companies are considering alternative risk transfer options, it can be valuable for brokers to understand how they might benefit from partnerships with captive managers. A captive manager can help a broker deliver value-added services to clients.
Registration is underway for the annual conference of the Captive Insurance Council of the District of Columbia, Inc. (CIC-DC), scheduled for October 27. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s CIC-DC conference will be conducted online but will offer a number of sessions featuring top captive insurance industry experts.
