“The captive insurance industry was born, raised and perfected in Bermuda — and we continue to build on that history of success as the market evolves” – Jasmine DeSilva

“The captive insurance industry was born, raised and perfected in Bermuda — and we continue to build on that history of success as the market evolves,” said Jasmine DeSilva, BDA Business Development Manager for Risk and Insurance Solutions. “Despite the challenges presented by the global pandemic and the impact it had on the business decision-making process, figures from the Bermuda Monetary Authority show a number of new captives registered in 2020, and gross written premiums held firm at approximately $40 billion. For those interested in utilising captives as a key risk management tool, there is no better place than Bermuda.”

The World Captive Forum’s roster of speakers features a number of industry leaders from Bermuda, including: Timae Flood of the Bermuda Monetary Agency; Nick Dove, Chairman of R&Q Captive Management; Nick Frost, President of Davies Captive Management Limited; Michael Woodroffe, President, Kirkway International Ltd; Lisa Willitts, Owner, Captive Advisory Partners LLC; and Eduardo Fox, Consultant – Corporate, Private Client, & Trusts and Latin America at Appleby.
