Captive Insurance Management

Captive Insurance companies are wholly owned legal entities that are formed and owned by organisations to underwrite all, or a selection of, the risks of that organisation and occasionally its affiliates, such as customer Insurance programmes linked to the products and services they provide.

They can provide some compelling benefits and are especially worth considering if your business is currently spending more than US$3m or you are retaining high levels of risk through policy deductibles. Alternatively, companies spending lower amounts may want to consider the Rent-A-Captive or Cell Captive facilities we offer in Bermuda and Guernsey. A captive enjoys accounting and tax benefits, as well as allowing you to:

  • formalise your cover for uninsurable risks
  • reduce your dependence and expenditure on the insurance market
  • recapture the underwriting profits and investment income otherwise earned by commercial provider
  • gain access to wider insurance market for possible improved terms and wider coverage.

With annual written premiums and assets of US$1.2bn and US$2bn respectively, we've a proven track record in helping clients choose a fitting domicile for their Captive Insurance company by evaluating business goals and operational issues. In fact, 20 of our current captives have transferred from other Captive Insurance managers - due, we believe, to the active involvement of our highly experienced senior managers.
