STAMFORD — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will make a brief appearance in his native Stamford Wednesday to keynote the the second-annual Connecticut Captive Insurance Association Symposium.

Captive insurance is “essentially, formalized self-insurance,” according to the CCIA website. Malloy’s office described captive insurance as a “growing part of Connecticut’s insurance industry” in a news release Tuesday.

Other speakers scheduled for Wednesday’s symposium include Connecticut Insurance Commissioner Thomas B. Leonardi, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Catherine Smith and State Senator Joseph Crisco.

The symposium begins at 7 a.m. and Malloy is scheduled to speak at 9 a.m. The Sheraton Hotel on East Main Street is hosting the conference.
