Oklahoma Captive Domicile Summary

Oklahoma State Seal SF

Like many other captive insurance company domiciles, Oklahoma has enjoyed steady growth.

Between 2015 and 2019, captive premium volume more than doubled, rising to $224.5 million last year, up from $111.5 million in 2015.

Captive managers say the growth, at least in part, has been driven by the high quality and accessibility of Oklahoma captive regulators.

"The captive division is phenomenal. They really want to help and are very accessible," said Jerry Messick, CEO of captive manager Elevate Captives in Oklahoma City.
