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”.

Captive forum to feature session on reputational risk

Captive forum to feature session on reputational risk

MIAMI—The 21st annual World Captive Forum will offer a robust schedule of workshops and educational sessions, including a new session on reputational risks, at its upcoming conference Jan. 30 through Feb. 1 in Miami.

The special hot topics roundtable, “Reputation: The Next Disaster,” will address questions and concerns about how to manage headline-grabbing exposures and respond to calls for greater transparency.

The World Captive Forum, which is co-sponsored by Business Insurance, also will provide thought leadership from keynote speakers Joseph J. Plumeri, chairman and CEO of Willis Group Holdings P.L.C., and Clyde Wardle, senior emerging markets currency strategist for HSBC Holdings P.L.C.

At the conference, Archer Daniels Midland Co. will be recognized with the Award of Excellence. Michael Lusk, vp of insurance and risk management at Decatur, Ill.-based ADM, will accept the award on behalf of the company.

Mr. Lusk was named to the Business Insurance Risk Management Honor Roll® in 2011.

The award recognizes the parent of a single-owner captive and its representatives for thought leadership in the global use of a captive insurance company; contributions to the enterprise's strategy, objectives and businesses in the field; and contributions to the risk and insurance profession with regard to captive insurance.

Previous recipients of the Award of Excellence at the WCF include Marias Falls Insurance Co. Ltd., formed in 1984 in Bermuda by DHL Worldwide Express, which Bonn, Germany-based Deutsche Post A.G. later acquired.

New for this year's conference, risk managers and benefit managers are eligible for free registration. To register, or for additional information about the 2012 World Captive Forum, please visit
