An opportunity for delegates to formulate Risk Programmes for imaginary companies is one of the features of Risk '96, The Guernsey Forum - a combined conference, exhibition and workshop event embracing the theme of risk management taking place in Guernsey on 18-20 September 1996.

'We have developed the concept from the very successful formula used for the 1989/90 Captive Forum held in the Island and believe this forthcoming event will be especially challenging for all participants,' says Steve Butterworth, a keen supporter of professional risk management techniques.

More than 1,200 square metres of space, plus a 400-seat theatre have been booked for the event which will take place at Beau Sejour, St Peter Port, the Island's purpose-built conference and leisure centre.

Mr Butterworth says: 'The programme will include a series of workshops covering a wide range of risk topics such as disaster, pollution, mergers and acquisitions, employee benefits, fire and directors' liability insurance. We are structuring the format so as to cater as much for delegates seeking an introduction to the world of risk management as for those who wish to add to their existing experience and knowledge.'

The definition has widened even further. Insurance subsidiaries solely writing related business are termed pure captives, whilst those which also write unrelated business are termed broad captives.
