A note from the new incoming Chair of the Insurance Managers Association of Cayman:

"2017 has been another successful year for Cayman's international insurance industry. At the start of Q4, written premiums had reached nearly $12.5billion from over 730 licenses, placing us on track to repeat the success of 2016 - we're looking forward to revealing the end of year results in January.

With these figures demonstrating our continued intelligent and innovative leadership, and with the recent results from the EU regarding co-operative jurisdictions, we continue to make large strides in making Cayman the #1 jurisdiction of choice.

We were however, very saddened to hear of the passing of former IMAC Chair Linda Haddleton, last month. With resilience, Linda has been a member of IMAC Executive Committee for a number of years, devoting her time and soul to the organisation, and the industry as a whole. It is with heavy hearts that we say farewell to Linda and we wish her family continued condolences. Linda will be very fondly remembered by IMAC, and the entire industry. 

To continue Linda's fierce commitment to drive Cayman's international insurance industry forward, we have an exciting year ahead in 2018. We'll be at RIMS in April, as well as hosting our own roadshow events, continuing with our webinar series, and contributing insightful leadership, all in the name of raising the profile of Cayman as a domicile. We aim to cement our position as the world's leading jurisdiction for insurance, and we look forward to having you on that journey with us. I'm delighted to move into 2018 as the Chair of such a forward thinking and ambitious organisation.

We thank you all as always, for your continued support and dedication to Cayman's international insurance industry, and wish you and your families a happy and healthy holiday season."

Captives generate $100m for local economy
We were delighted to reveal last week that in 2016, Cayman's captive industry contributed over $100m to the island's economy. A combination of boosting Cayman's tourism product, regulatory body fees and scholarship foundation fundraising, it's a true reflection of a thriving industry on the local economy.
