IMAC Scholarship Gala

Our annual Black Tie Gala has sold out! For those who purchased tickets, don't forget to come out on Saturday 15th, 6PM at the Kimpton Seafire Resort. We'll be raising money for the IMAC scholarship fund, which has funded $3.9 million and has helped 48 students to date. Looking forward to seeing you all there!


Cayman Captive Forum 2018 Update

General Registration opened on August 13th and we already have over 700 registered attendees with 3 months to go! This is slightly ahead of the same time last year, so great news indeed. To register, click here

Wanting to see what's new for 2018? Have a look here.

Speakers and panels are finalised, with an agenda now available. We have one exhibitor space available and also a few sponsorship opportunities remaining, so be sure to get in touch to find out more! 

And last but not least, registration is now open for the Forum Golf Tournaments, sponsored by Performa Orbis. These tournaments will be held on the Tuesday morning and the Friday afternoon - the latter of which promises to be a casual and relaxed event after a busy week of meetings and networking!

A look at the Forum Agenda

We have recently finalised the agenda for what promises to be another exciting year of topical, relevant and entertaining speakers. You definitely won't want to miss our 'Meet the Markets' event, or our host of other signature networking events.

Keep in mind that the event format has been slightly updated this year. The tutorial sessions (now free for all) will take place on Tuesday morning (27th Nov). This allows the main Forum speaker sessions to finish earlier each day - providing delegates with extended networking opportunities prior to each evening event.

We also have Christine Hofbeck, an actuary who starred on Survivor who will be sharing her insight on "Winning Conditions". 

There is also a featured presentation explaining "How American Health Care Trends Shape the Future of Global Health Care", presented by Dr. Christopher Kersey. 

But wait, there's more! Other sessions will cover governance and leadership; cyber risk and tax reform; and medical stop loss. 

We also have many more panel presentations covering InsurTech, work place violence, telemedicine and the Me Too movement. There is even a mock medical malpractice trial where attendees can act as the jury!

Keynote speaker - Greg Schwem

Greg Schwem, our keynote speaker at this year's Cayman Captive Forum, is a corporate comedian, who will provide his own unique perspective on the captive insurance industry in a presentation titled "Work, Laugh, Repeat".
