A Captive Insurer's Actuary Role Should Evolve

Shaking hands
September 09, 2016

Aaron Hillebrandt, a consulting actuary with Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc., makes a strong case for captives viewing their actuary as a "strategic partner" in a September 1, 2016, blog published on Pinnacle's website.

How do you view the actuary retained for your captive? Do you view him or her as a person who calculates the loss reserves? Or do you view him or her as a person who provides a rate indication or a funding estimate for the next policy year?

The reality is that there is an array of services that actuaries can and do provide. Could an actuary help you with program design, benchmarking performance, claims analysis, and collateral requirements for fronting insurers or reinsurers? The experience of your editors supports Mr. Hillebrandt’s proposition that an actuary is a "strategic partner" who can add value to captives in many ways.
