Brexit and Lloyd's: Is this the Beginning, or Is It the End?

Michael Maglaras-SF
May 07, 2018

A new Captive Thought Leader Video featuring Michael Maglaras, principal and president at Michael Maglaras & Company, titled "Brexit and Lloyd's: Is this the Beginning, or Is It the End?," has recently been added to the Captive.com video library.

Brexit refers to the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. Mr. Maglaras considers what this means for the Lloyd's of London market and for those with captive insurance companies in the Lloyd's market. While Mr. Maglaras believes that Lloyd's is not going anywhere, he expects changes. For instance, some London-based meetings may move to Dublin or Brussels. Likewise, if you have a base of risk in the United Kingdom, "passporting" insurance between EU countries may become more difficult. However, he says the talent will not change and will not leave the London market. Also, the amount of facultative and treaty capacity currently provided by Lloyd's cannot be absorbed by the US and Bermuda markets. Further, he believes that the way in which the Lloyd's market has responded creatively, succinctly, and cogently in a supportive way will not change.

This section of the site currently features 88 short educational videos by 14 captive insurance experts. Among the topics covered in the 1–3-minute videos are captives claims handling, Brexit, runoff transactions, micro-captives, 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, workers compensation in captives, and benefits in captives.

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