Captive focus at Island of Ireland Forum

Published on Mon, 01/08/2022 - 12:36

The future of captive insurance, regulatory reforms and the role of non-executive directors will all feature at Airmic’s inaugural Island of Ireland Forum on 25 October.

Dublin is home to more than 80 active captives, making it the European Union’s second largest captive domicile. The business communities in Germany, France and the United States are the most prolific users of Irish captives, while around 10 captives are owned by UK corporates, including several Airmic members.

The Forum, to be held at the Westin Hotel, Dublin, will open with keynote speaker Seán Fleming TD, Minister of State with responsibility for Financial Services, Credit Unions and Insurance, and is open to all Airmic members, wherever they are based, as well as risk and insurance managers on either side of the border in Ireland.

Due to the prominent nature of captives and large captive community in the Irish market, Airmic’s Captive Ambassador Richard Cutcher is curating a stream of four captive Breakout Sessions.

“As we have seen throughout the past three years, including the success of our first Captives Forum in March, there is a huge appetite for education, thought leadership and networking opportunities concerning captive insurance,” said Richard.

“I am delighted captives will be playing a prominent role at the Island of Ireland Forum and feedback from the local captive community, as well as our members in the UK, tells me this will be a popular set of sessions.”

In the opening captive session delegates will hear two recent captive formation experiences in Dublin, while a discussion on ‘Solvency II reform and regulatory opportunities’ will follow.

A ‘NED Talks’ panel will debate the evolving role of independent directors of captives and the stream will end discussing the future with a focus on talent, tax and tech.
