This year’s CICA conference offers a wealth of new ideas to help design innovative captive insurance strategies.

The Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) announces the conference line-up for the CICA 2016 International Conference March 6-8, 2016 at the Westin Kierland Resort, Scottsdale, Arizona.

This year’s theme Think Big! Expand Your Captive’s Horizons offers a wealth of new ideas to help design innovative captive strategies.

“Opportunities and challenges are growing rapidly in the captive arena. Cyber risk, healthcare reform, employee benefit changes, technological advances and increasing regulatory oversight are converging and creating a need for big ideas for captives,” says CICA president, Dennis Harwick.

The CICA International Conference program opens on Sunday March 6 with an opening reception sponsored by US Legal Support, followed by a general session, awards presentations and a keynote address by Peter Navarro on Monday, March 7.

Navarro is an author, educator and sought after keynote speaker. His unique and internationally recognized expertise lies in his big picture application of a highly sophisticated but easily accessible macroeconomic analysis of the business environment and financial markets for investors and corporate executives. Several of his books have become movies and his articles have appeared in a wide range of publications from Business Week to the Wall Street Journal and Harvard Business Review.

Educational sessions are held on Monday, Mar. 8 and Tuesday, Mar.9 concluding with a networking reception that evening.

Conference program highlights include:

  • Using Design Thinking to Spur Innovation
  • Healthcare Captive Trends – Impacts of the Affordable Care Act
  • Next Generation ERM
  • Tax Update for Captive Business Today
  • Will the Real Cyber Solution Please Stand Up?

Additional sessions cover expanding captive boundaries with reinsurance, bolstering value through analytics, balancing investment risks and rewards, captive exit strategies, tax updates, emerging risks and much more.

CICA’s domicile-neutral environment brings together the perfect blend of captive owners, potential captive owners, captive managers, risk managers, domicile regulators and service providers. Key decision makers from the captive owners attend, along with many people who are just beginning the process to form a captive.

Special thanks to conference Gold Sponsors Bartlett Actuarial Group, Ltd., Johnson Lambert, and U.S. Legal for their support and helping to make the 2016 CICA International Conference possible.
