Cost is not the only consideration when deciding where to domicile a captive insurer, as John S. Alberici, of Alberici Corporation, discusses in this video. While domiciling in a company's home state can save many costs, evaluating the state's commitment to captive insurance programs is equally important to domicile selection.
John S. Alberici, of Alberici Corporation, discusses how having more of a company's own capital at risk results in an increased focus and level of involvement in terms of safety and controlling costs.
In the video "Three Critical Success Factors for Group Captives," Michael J. O'Neill of ACIG elaborates on how a group captive insurance company's mission statement is vital to its success and describes what makes an effective mission statement.
Many single-parent captives insure only the risks of just one or a few insureds and will be unable to achieve risk sharing. One solution involves joining a risk pool. The benefits of captive risk pooling are explained in this video by Martin Eveleigh from Atlas Insurance Management.
Jeremy Colombik, president of Management Services International, says that what makes risk management profitable comes down to understanding that whether a business purchases insurance or not, the risk remains. Businesses can make their commercial insurance policies more efficient with a high deductible policy that moves risk into a captive insurer.
