Captives/Alternative Funding/Risk Management

Reducing the Cost of Risk

Large organizations can significantly reduce the cost of risk by employing Captive Insurance Companies or many other types of alternative risk vehicles combined with sound risk management practices. Captives provide cash-flow and tax management advantages that can enhance the financials of the parent company. Captives may be used for virtually any type of property/casualty insurance coverage as well as many employee benefits coverages, succession planning as well as funding other uninsurable contingencies.
