The History of Captives

Captive insurance got its start more than 500 years ago when British and Italian ship owners began sharing risks. Captives have always offered a non-traditional approach to insuring risk for companies looking for affordable coverage. Presently, there are more than 30 states that register and regulate captives, with Vermont being the largest domicile.

How Do Captives Work Today?

A captive is an insurance company. It’s licensed by the jurisdiction in which it operates, which means it’s treated by the government the same as any other insurance company. An employer will need to adhere to certain regulations, but our worry-free captive management ensures all state and federal requirements are met.

Owning a captive offers employers many advantages like:

–  Introducing a defined framework for risk management

–  Designing a plan without the restrictions of off-the-shelf traditional insurance

–  Influencing insurance operations, like claims handling and reporting

–  Profiting from positive underwriting outcomes
