Is Captive Insurance Right for Your Business?

November 30, 2017

A new Captive Thought Leader Video from Management Services International (MSI), titled "Is Captive Insurance Right for Your Business?," is available for viewing in the library.

The video features Jeremy Colombik, president of MSI, who says that this boils down to educating the client of all the benefits that a captive insurance company may offer. A lot of clients believe that they are being as efficient as possible by obtaining commercial policies. Effectively, they are already self-insuring, without knowing that there is a more efficient and better way to manage risk. Many clients are not aware that they do not have to be a Fortune 500 company to own a captive and achieve the benefits of captive formation. A small-to-medium-sized business owner grossing $1 million to $250 million per year can set up a captive program.

This section of the site currently features 57 short educational videos by 12 captive insurance experts. Among the topics covered in the 1–3-minute videos are microcaptives, tax issues, captive feasibility, captive domicile selection, choosing an auditor, captive management, group captives, healthcare captives, risk pooling, common myths about captives, how to manage a captive efficiently, what makes a captive successful, and benefits in captives.

Along with Mr. Colombik, the captive insurance experts featured in the videos include the following.

  • John Alberici, chairman, Alberici Corporation
  • Gary Bowers, tax partner, Johnson Lambert
  • Martin Eveleigh, chairman, Atlas Insurance Management
  • Alan Fleming, chairman, Airmic
  • Debbie Liebeskind, actuary, Human Resources, Towers Watson
  • Michael Maglaras, principal, Michael Maglaras & Company
  • Steven McElhiney, president and CEO, EWI Re, Inc.
  • Michael O'Neill, president and CEO, American Contractors Insurance Group
  • Hugh Rosenbaum, retired principal, Towers Watson
  • P. Bruce Wright, partner, Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP
  • Brady Young, president and CEO, Strategic Risk Solutions

Each of these captive insurance thought leaders has decades of broad experience with captive insurance companies, and they freely share their expertise in the videos. This constitutes a wealth of information on captive insurance fundamentals that will be especially valuable to newcomers to captive insurance. By watching one or two of these informative videos each day for a month, you will hone your knowledge of captive insurance fundamentals and trends.

There is no cost to view the videos, and you will find them in the Captive Thought Leader Videos section of More videos will be added in the future.
