Over the past five years, many startup companies have entered the insurance marketplace in various technological and underwriting capacities to manage disruption through advanced analytics, data and technological processes.

Most of these companies anticipate the possibility of experiencing risk on underwriting results early on in their development stage. This session explored the use of captives in these instances with a specific emphasis on fintech, insurtech and startup companies. Our esteemed speakers, Mr. Robert Gagliardi Head of Captive Management at AIG and Mr. Peter Rapciewicz Senior Vice President Alternative Risk Practice Leader at Lockton discussed this topic and shared their experience with the current marketplace. Mr. John Ferrara, Senior Manager at Ernst & Young, moderated the discussion. The session explored relevant lines of insurance, the captive formation process, risk sharing options and encouraged open discussion with attendees.
