Group Captive Insurance Programs

A group captive insurance program is a type of self-insurance that allows businesses to pool their resources together to create their own insurange program. The group, or "captive," is typically made up of businesses in the same industry or geographic area that share similar risks. These businesses typically generate workers compensation, General Liability, and Auto liability premiums of over $350,000. While not required, this premium is often needed to realize the financial benefits of the Group Captive model. By pooling resources together, the group is able to self insure losses up to a certain deductible, negotiate better reinsurance rates, and often secure better coverage than they would be able to individually.

What are the benefits? 

There are several benefits of a group captive insurance program:

Cost savings: By pooling resources, businesses in a group captive are able to negotiate better rates and coverage than they would be able to individually. This can lead to significant cost savings for businesses.

Control of risk management: A group captive allows businesses to take control of their own risk management. Instead of relying on an insurance company to manage their risks, businesses in the captive are able to make decisions about how to best mitigate their risks and manage their insurance coverage.

More comprehensive coverage: A group captive may be able to provide coverage for risks that are not typically covered by traditional insurance.

Flexibility: Group captive insurance can be customized to meet the specific needs of the businesses in the group. This allows businesses to tailor their coverage to their unique risks and exposures

Stability: Group captive insurance can provide stable and predictable insurance costs, which can be beneficial for budgeting and forecasting.

Tax benefits: Some group captive insurance programs may offer tax benefits to the participating businesses.

It's important to note that group captive insurance may not be suitable for all businesses, and it's important to consider if it is the right fit for your organization. Consulting with an expert on our team is always recommended.
