Unique method that makes the implementation of a captive and having a captive simple.
Manage your business, not your captive.
Simple and captive insurance company management are usually not synonymous. Captive compliance, captive formation, captive management and captive exit strategies are arduous, daunting tasks. So that business owners can concentrate on running their businesses, most business owners choose from among many experienced captive managers.
Captive owners who attempt to assemble a team of captive professionals have a nearly impossible task. Finding an experienced, expert captive manager saves time, money and headaches. Expert captive managers provide turnkey captive solutions only attainable with dedicated teams of Actuaries, Attorneys, and CPAs. The right captive manager makes owning a captive simple.
Captive regulations, management and compliance can “hold business owners precious time Captive.” The penalties for noncompliance are significant and can jeopardize the license of your captive. Take back your time Captives took with simple captives.
Captive Formation and Management
Captive formation and management is no longer complicated and time consuming. If a business secures the right captive manager for its’ needs, then their captive solution should run smoothly. Carefully performing due diligence is crucial, as there are significant differences between managers. Some Managers offer complete suites of services and others offer an ala carte menu. Since Captive Managers serve as the Captain of the captive ship, it is important to find the right one.
Most businesses seeking a captive solution choose to engage captive managers. There are many skilled captive managers available and communication is key. Captive Managers should communicate in a clear manner which is understandable to captive owners who are not insurance professionals. Communication with your captive manager such as acknowledgement of an email sent or phone call made within 24 hours, even if it takes longer than 24 hours to provide an answer are items an owner should expect.
Captive formation includes creating documents for the insurance department. Management includes financial, regulatory and compliance reporting.
Frequently Asked Questions

Many CPAs know little or nothing about captives and therefore do not want to engage in that conversation. In addition, there are many false captive misconceptions that prevent certain CPAs from even researching them.
