BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

330 attend captive forum


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—The 16th annual World Captive Forum attracted more than 330 attendees from around the world to the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Hotel in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The annual conference is produced jointly by Business Insurance, Quest Insurance Solutions Ltd. and Tillinghast-Towers Perrin.

Reflecting the corporate interest in the area, about half of the sessions were devoted to funding of employee benefit risks through captives. Other session topics included the use of cell captives, captive investment strategies, tax issues related to captives and developments in the reinsurance market.

Next year's conference is scheduled for Nov. 5-7, also at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Hotel. For more information, contact the World Captive Conference by mail at 4248 Park Glen Road, Minneapolis, Minn. 55416; by e-mail at info
