Captive insurance opportunities continue to dramatically expand and evolve. New benefits financing options, emerging risk exposures, new domiciles and innovative captive structures. Learn about the state of the art from fellow captive owners and captive experts who will share best practices, insights and know-how at the World Captive Forum.

Abundant networking and educational opportunities will allow you to benchmark your captive and capture new ideas for improving the ROI of your captive insurance program. The World Captive Forum serves as the ideal community for you to connect with others and review your captive options with confidence.

Now in our 26th year, the World Captive Forum is one of the longest running international captive insurance conferences in the world. This conference's longevity is a testament to the quality of its high-caliber, exclusive audience, educational content, superior industry expertise and distinctive networking and marketing opportunities available to attendees.

With two separate tracks addressing the use of captives to finance both property/casualty and benefits risks, the World Captive Forum attracts risk managers, benefit managers and other financial executives of organizations either insured by a captive or exploring formation of one. Also, the meeting draws leading providers of captive services, including captive management, legal, accounting, actuarial, claims, asset management, fronting and many other services. The domicile neutral event also attracts numerous regulators and representatives from major domiciles.

Attendees at the World Captive Forum come from across North America and the world. Past meetings have had representatives from the Bahamas, Barbados, Belgium, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, Canada, Cayman Islands, Channel Islands, Colombia, France, Germany, Granada, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Republic of South Africa, St. Lucia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
