A.M. BestTV: Dodd-Frank to Frame Captive Regulatory Talk at VCIA

OLDWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- This A.M. BestTV episode looks at the hot-button issues likely to be discussed at the upcoming Vermont Captive Insurance Association annual conference, beginning Tuesday in Burlington, Vt. Today: the uncertainties surrounding U.S. regulation, and how the VCIA is valued for legislative advocacy in Washington. Rich Smith, president of the VCIA, said much of the group's focus has shifted to legislation moving through Washington. He said they are trying to avoid having the captive industry inadvertently swept up in bills that the industry and association doesn't believe should apply to them, such as the Nonadmitted and Reinsurance Reform Act, part of the Dodd-Frank Act. Diane Salter, senior vice president, Mountain Laurel Risk Retention Group Inc., talks about health care reform and the unknowns of how it might impact the captive world.
