An informative webinar offering a comprehensive look at alternative risk financing solutions for the cannabis industry from Purves Redmond Limited, Quest and the Canadian Securities Exchange.

Host Barrington Miller, Director, Client Listed Services at Canadian Securities Exchange, welcomed Mert Guler from Purves Redmond Limited along with Lisa Willitts and Nicholas Frost from Quest to the 72nd floor of First Canadian Place in downtown Toronto for this engaging webinar.

As a whole, the cannabis industry is faced with significant and unique risks. Due to these risks, limitations in the current insurance marketplace, and increasing prices for coverage, cannabis companies face steep challenges when it comes to purchasing adequate insurance coverage. The webinar covers specific key risks that are common in the cannabis industry and discusses how insurance can be an investment in your future – not just an expense. The group considers one alternative risk financing solution currently in development, “captive” insurance cells. This begins a conversation on the possibility of issuers investing premiums for selected risks into an owned insurance facility rather than paying increasing insurance rates for reduced coverage and protection.
