Breakout: New Frontiers in Risk Mitigation – Setting up a Bermuda Captive for your Cannabis Business
This panel session offers insights by representatives of cannabis businesses and legal, insurance management and audit experts involved with the setup and operation of Bermuda non-commercial insurers in the cannabis industry. The speakers will address the rationale for setting up a captive in Bermuda, including both as a single parent captive and as part of a segregated account company (“rent-a-captive” structure). Insights and “lesson learned” will be shared on the formation and BMA licensing process. This session will be of particular interest to owners of cannabis businesses looking to set up a Bermuda captive program.

Breakout: Captives & Technology
The captive concept was created in Bermuda over 60 years ago because innovation is in our DNA. This spirit of innovation continues today by our continued support of the development of innovative new technology. The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) is pleased to highlight innovative new tech that captive managers can use to significantly improve the expenses they pay (Allocated Loss Expense Provisions (ALAE)/ Defense and Cost Containment (DCC) and get better insights and analytics on claims. As captives take on more coverage thanks to business interruption issues and COVID-19, legal expenses are going to rise and claims counts will go up. There is some interesting tech that we use that can help captives and their managers take a significant bite out of those expenses.

The Gift of Resilience: Keynote with Giles Duley, Photojournalist & Humanitarian
Giles Duley tells his own incredible story of survival, whilst also weaving in the stories of the remarkable people he documents through his work. At the core of his talk is the theme of resilience and how each one of us possesses strengths we do not yet appreciate, but in difficult times discover. In his own words, “resilience is life's gift for those who have suffered, it means we see the world with brighter vision".

Breakout: The Modernisation of Insurance Risk and Financial Strategies
The legacy mode of making decisions around risk financing, specifically insurance, has proven to be insufficient to the task in the compound crisis in which we are now living. Operational disruption, shifting corporate financial priorities, and a crushingly hard insurance market have collaborated to prove that we need a new way to do the insurance thing. Join this virtual interactive session to discuss how we can modernise our approach to risk financing.
