the insurance sector will be the focus of the Guernsey Insurance
The event, titled 'Future stars - where next for the
(re)insurance market?', takes place on Wednesday 21
September at etc.venues, 8 Fenchurch Place, London, and will
bring together experts from across the insurance industry to
discuss the sector's hot topics. Most notably, the event will
seek to identify which insurance centres are best placed to adapt
to and focus on new structures, particularly in reinsurance.
"I am excited by the emerging opportunities in the
insurance sector and the Guernsey Insurance Forum provides the
perfect platform for our range of expert panellists to tell us more
about them," said Guernsey Finance Chief Executive Dominic
"Guernsey is well-known as the number one captive insurance
domicile in Europe, but we have shown our adaptability and
expertise in recent years through our fast-moving insurance-linked
securities businesses, our new engineering of longevity risk for
pension funds and our developing attraction as a jurisdiction for
new commercial reinsurance companies - something we hope to see
expand further in the coming years."
The half-day event will feature two panel sessions and be
moderated by ITV News presenter Alastair Stewart. A keynote speaker
will be announced shortly.
The first panel session will focus on structural innovation in
the marketplace and centres of excellence. Panellists comprise Mark
Cook of Willis Towers Watson; Mark Helyar of Bedell Cristin; David
Clissitt of Deloitte and Oliver Schofield of RKH Reinsurance
Broking. The second panel session will look at market developments,
particularly in the area of reinsurance, as well as drivers of
innovation and the key growth ingredients. Panellists for this
session include Niklaus Hilti of Credit Suisse; Caroline Bradley of
the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC); Julian Walker of
Nomura International and Steve Britton of Aon Captive and Insurance
Mr Wheatley said the event will appeal to reinsurance
professionals, captive managers, insurance companies, actuaries,
lawyers, accountants and risk managers.
"Our speakers are of the highest calibre and will provide
the audience with a significant level of detail and technical
expertise. The nature of the event will also provide an opportunity
for delegates to question panellists and speakers and put across
their own views, as well as take advantage of the networking
opportunities available," he said.
