Appleby Bermuda will have three representatives at the upcoming World Captive Forum in Miami. Managing Partner Tim Faries and Eduardo Fox, Latin America Consultant, will be speaking on Latin American Captives. Senior Associate Matthew Carr will also be attending the conference and doing business development with the team. The Forum is one of the longest running international captive insurance conferences in the world with over 50 highly acclaimed industry experts discussing new and emerging risks facing companies and organisations worldwide, demonstrating how captives can offer solutions that may not be available in the traditional insurance marketplace.
Tim and Eduardo’s panel entitled ‘Latin American Captives’ will explore the role of captives as points of differentiation, offering change and solutions to a broad range of organisations facing changing economic conditions.
