The traditional P&C insurance industry is still struggling with rate hikes and unpredictable and significant insurable losses due to climate, political instability and other economic factors. Many small and medium-sized companies are unable to purchase insurance coverage at an affordable level. How can they switch to a captive solution quickly to enable them to manage down their insurance costs? This session will cover some of the market innovations to help them do just that!

Following this presentation, audience members will be able to take steps to quickly switch from a traditional insurance cover to a captive solution; understand how captive domiciles and insurance managers are using technology and innovation to speed up access to off-the-shelf captives; understand the relative costs and benefits of insuring in the traditional market versus using an off-the-shelf captive.

As the landscape of business and risk management processes continues to evolve, insurance captives have emerged as an agile solution that can seamlessly adapt to an organization's changing needs. Today, captives come in diverse sizes and structures, making them versatile tools capable of supporting a wide spectrum of clients.

During this session, we will hear from captive owners representing various facets of captive utilization, shedding light on how they integrate captives at the core of their risk management strategy. Regardless of where your company's risk profile may fall, there exists a captive solution that can accommodate it. This ranges from smaller captives designed to address catastrophic risks to more conventional captives writing emerging risks such as third-party business and other P&C risks.

Join us for a panel discussion featuring captive owners, as they delve into the concept of phased captive growth plans that can align with your organization's evolving risk management philosophy. Whether you already have an established captive or are exploring the potential of establishing a wholly owned captive insurance entity, this session offers valuable insights for you.

Diversity is more than just a trendy buzzword – when businesses have diverse teams, they reap the benefits of higher profitability, greater innovation, better decision-making, and more engaged employees. While the positive impact of workplace diversity is well studied and documented, companies still struggle to get it right due to challenges in hiring and a lack of understanding of exactly what creates diversity.

Members of Amplify Women engage in a panel discussion about the challenges and benefits of attracting and retaining a diverse workforce. The discussion will ask panel members to provide their own experiences of diversity in the workplace, explain the benefits of diversity at all levels of a company, offer real examples of how a diverse workforce can be attracted and retained, and offer advice on the challenges of navigating diversity in the workplace. Please join this session as members of Amplify Women provide their insight on how building a diverse team can drive growth and innovation in your captive.

Following this presentation, audience members will be able to clearly understand that DEI initiatives are here to stay. Organizations that choose not to embrace this way of doing business will ultimately fall behind in the competitive landscape.
