Missouri Captive Domicile Summary

Missouri State Seal-SF

As a captive insurance company domicile, steady growth is an apt description for the state of Missouri.

The number of captives licensed in Missouri has increased by nearly 50 percent since 2014, with 72 captives at the end of 2019.

Captive premium volume has been more volatile. Last year's $3.4 billion in captive premiums was the same as in 2016, though down from $4.1 billion in 2018.

Missouri captive regulators expect more growth in the months ahead. 

"This year with the hardening market I have already been contacted by several captive managers about possible applications," said John Talley, captive program manager for the Missouri Department of Commerce & Insurance in Jefferson City, Missouri.
