This GCP Short, produced in partnership with Zurich Insurance, is all about the value and selection of outside directors for captive insurance company boards.

Friend of the Podcast Paul Wöhrmann, Head of Captives Services at Zurich, has brought together five expert speakers on this topic, three of which are already independent directors of captive boards.

Over the course of 25 minutes listeners will hear from Andrew Bradley, Malcolm Cutts-Watson and Francoise Carli, who have all had careers packed full with captive experience, and sit on captive boards today.

We are also joined by Xavier Groffils, the manager of the Luxembourg captive owned by Belgian chemicals company Solvay, and Hans-Peter Wagenhöfer, director of insurance and reinsurance at German multinational BASF.

Our expert panel discuss definition of outside and independent directors, how they are viewed in different jurisdictions around Europe and the value they bring to a captive board. Malcolm begins by outlining what he believes are the key responsibilities of a captive board and outside directors.
