Recording Date: Wednesday, February 24, 2021
2020 was a historic year for all sectors of the economy with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The captive insurance industry was no different, with the pandemic putting pressure on the industry at the same time as the commercial insurance market saw hardening premium rates. How did the industry address these conflicting pressures and how is it positioned going forward? In our annual market update, we take a look at these and other trends affecting captives, report on captive numbers by domicile and discuss the outlook for the coming year.
This webinar is suitable for existing and prospective captive owners looking to get an update on developments in the captive insurance industry.
