Missouri established captive laws for the first time in 2007. Updates were adopted in 2009 to simplify redomesticating to Missouri and make it a more attractive domicile. The state is home to the headquarters of the NAIC (Kansas City), as well as branch offices of most major accounting and actuarial firms. The Missouri Department of Insurance regulatory staff has significant experience and expertise in captive insurance and reinsurance issues. The state's central geographic location, well-developed infrastructure, and efficient regulatory approach have all contributed to its success as a captive domicile.
