Happy Fourth

Last week I talked about our meeting with the British Consulate and discussing opportunities regarding captive insurance. This week we head into the Fourth of July holiday where we red-blooded Americans rant against the British monarchy… er, no – we usually have a cookout, hang out with friends and family, and go watch fireworks. As a matter of fact, Americans may even love the Queen more than our Brit friends!

Keeping with the British connection, one of the keynote speakers for this year’s VCIA conference in August will be Hank Watkins, Regional Director & President, Americas, Lloyd’s of London – the venerable British insurance market.  Hank will be  joined by Vermont Commissioner of Financial Regulation, Mike Pieciak, to discuss the perils and opportunities associated with ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) issues and their practical application on the captive insurance industry. Be sure to register for the VCIA Annual Conference to check out this interesting keynote and connect with hundreds of other captive professionals!

I hope you all take  time this weekend to relax and enjoy this brief summer break. With the conference fast approaching, it will be good to rest and regroup  before digging back into captive insurance.  And invite one your favorite ex-pats along to your  BBQ!

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you soon.  

Rich Smith,
VCIA President
