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 Risk Management Advisors.
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.
Jeremy Colombik, president of Management Services International, states that five factors come into play to make a captive insurance company successful: (1) determining the type of risk to put into the captive (actuaries/underwriters), (2) minimizing commercial insurance costs, (3) better risk management, (4) increasing risk awareness, and (5) tax benefits.
Managing a captive efficiently comes down to having a streamlined approach. Captive managers coordinate multiple pieces such as actuaries, auditors, regulatory bodies, and financial statement preparation. A captive manager may want to look at a firm to help with back office support, according to Jeremy Colombik of Management Services International.
What does insurance look like in 2030, and what should captives be concerned with? In this guide, you'll learn how to begin to answer this question through scenario planning and some of the longer-term trends that should be considered.
