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 USD3m 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
