Captive and Funds Management conference in November

PKF Malta is proud to announce that it shall be launching its fourth Captive & Funds Management Conference that will be held at the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin on Friday 27 November 2009. This time round we shall also tackle issues relating to Professional Investment Funds including the recent EU directive on Alternative Investment Fund Managers and the new UCITS IV Directive. Dublin is poised to be an exciting time during the last week of November when as expected there will be a positive feeling arising out of the second referendum of the Lisbon treaty planned for the month of October.
Thanks to the support of sponsors, PKF wishes to promote a highly technical forum for specialists to converge in Dublin. One hopes that this event will draw the attention of international investors based on the high level of distinguished speakers from Marsh, AON, Willis, AM Best, Aviva, Fiscalreps, Taxbox and Norton Rose amongst others.
The topics being discussed include: The importance of contingency planning before forming a captive; Captive Management – the market is hardening-is it wise to take cheaper price options and sacrifice quality?; Superior investment policies and improved fund management techniques in a volatile market; Captive insurance is not only geared for large businesses but SME ‘s are realising it’s potential; Latest on Insurance Premium Tax compliance
Our target audience includes Risk Managers, Chief Risk Officers, Hedge Fund Managers, Financial Advisers, Chief Executive Officers, Captive Managers, Insurance Managers, Risk Analysts and Lawyers.
Commentators question whether the market is poised to turn the corner. They argue that the situation cannot actually get any worse as already there are signs of green shoots which may eventually grow into sold oaks. Such a positive feeling beckons the question on how best to prepare ourselves for the upturn in the insurance and the funds market.
The objective of this conference is to attract a dynamic audience and offer a place to meet and network, share strategies and build relationships with the top leaders in the industry. Our high-profile speakers will also present case studies covering the essential issues and address paramount concerns of today. A detailed agenda will be made availably shortly.
Attendees will find this event an excellent opportunity to network with their peers, enhance their profile and exchange business cards with strategic partners to create general awareness of the services their firms offer in the Captive and Funds industry. PKF is offering free passes to all registrants.
