Georgia Captive Domicile Summary

Georgia State Seal

While Georgia is one of the smaller captive insurance company domiciles in the United States, the state has been one of the fastest-growing domiciles.

As recently as 2014, just 9 captives were licensed in Georgia. Since then, Georgia's captive count has increased every year. Georgia's 52 captives at the end of 2019 were nearly 6 times greater compared to its 9 captives in 2014.

That rise in Georgia captive insurers has been accompanied by a big jump—well over 3 1/2 times in 3 years—in annual captive premium volume, which rose to $831.4 million in 2018, the last year statistics are available, from just $168.5 million in 2014.

Observers attribute that growth to several factors, including strong support and cooperation from state insurance regulators.

Captive Events

The Georgia Captive Insurance Association (GCIA) sponsors an annual conference in the fall to give captive sponsors the opportunity to network as well as to attend conference sessions. For example, the 2018 conference included sessions in which state captive regulators provided updates on the latest developments, as well as a session in which a captive sponsor laid out the advantages of setting up a captive in Georgia.
