Captive Insurance

A formalized, special-purpose corporate structure established by a parent company, trade association or group of companies to insure the risks of its owner(s)

Why form a captive?

For risks that a company elects to retain and self-insure, a captive insurance program offers significant benefits compared to self-insurance.

For risks that a company seeks to transfer, captives can provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional third party coverage.

Captives are set up for four main reasons:

  • Cost

    Lower total cost of insurance

  • Control

    Increased control of premiums and claims

  • Capacity

    Higher policy limits through reinsurance

  • Coverage

    Customized program design
