IMAC to Host the World’s Largest Captive Insurance Conference

The 2014 Cayman Captive Forum is a huge success of the jurisdiction, with registrations approaching the 1,400 mark. Hosted by the Insurance Managers Association of Cayman (IMAC), the annual event is now the world’s largest captive insurance conference. The Forum is to be held December 2nd to December 4th, 2014 at the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman

Chairperson of IMAC, Robert Leadbetter, said, “We have gone to great lengths ensure that we treat attendees to a rewarding and educational experience. If there is one thing to take away from the Forum, it is that the Cayman Islands represent Clearly Better Business.”

He also explained, “Attendees can look forward to a terrific line-up of ninety-three speakers covering thirty-four relevant issues ranging from Insuring Independent Physicians to Cyber Risk, as well as a nineteen year old’s account of his huge physical, emotional and logistical challenges of conducting a climate change research expedition in the Antarctic. We are also particularly pleased to present our keynote speaker, Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist, a futurist and a communicator and popularizer of science.”

The annual Cayman Captive Forum supports many IMAC initiatives throughout the year, including efforts to spread the good word about the Cayman Islands as a captive domicile, but equally importantly to support the IMAC Scholarship Fund. This fund is currently funding 7 Caymanian students to pursue their tertiary education overseas and has to date funded 29 students over the past 20 years.

Insurance Managers Association of Cayman (IMAC) is a non-profit organisation run by the insurance managers of the Cayman Islands. It was set up in 1981 with a view to act as both regulatory liaison with the Cayman Islands Government and to promote the Cayman Islands as a domicile of choice for captive insurance companies. The Association hosts the world’s largest captive insurance conference, attracting nearly 1,300 captive managers, service providers and directors annually.
