Small and medium sized enterprises are accessing captive benefits through Rent-a-captive and Protected Cell Company solutions. This means you can access the benefits of the captive with lower entrance costs.

Speak to a captive consulting team who can offer a strategic review/re-feasibility study to examine how well your captive is running, and how it will work better.

Speak to a captive manager to see if you can include this in your existing captive, or set one up to offer third party insurance to your customers.  This can diversify your captive, generate some income, and ensure your customers get sufficient insurance.

Speak to your insurance broker about conducting a longevity swap into the reinsurance market.

Your insurance broker’s captive and employee benefits teams may work together to support you with moving your employee benefits programme from the market to pooling, and ultimately into a captive, providing significant savings.
