Time Concept SF
November 08, 2018

Hugh Rosenbaum and his panel of timeline advisers recently deliberated and agreed on some new entries for's "History of Captives" timeline. The timeline now has the most up-to-date annual global captive counts as well as added entries for Avrahami (2017) and Microsoft (2018). A new, retroactive entry for 1990 has also been added for Brian Hall, recognizing his long-lasting influence on the Bermuda captive world.

Originally compiled for by Mr. Rosenbaum (with help from friends), the timeline reflects the important events that shaped and influenced the development of captive insurance over the past 50 years. Take a voyage through the history, the personalities, the regulations, the domiciles, and the publications that have led to captives being a successful and integral part of the insurance industry.

The timeline is divided into three eras, as follows.

Even if you know about and have already looked at the timeline, it never grows old. Come back to it again and again to see it evolve.

Do you have ideas of your own for additions or improvements to the timeline? Contact us, and we'd be delighted to let Mr. Rosenbaum and his advisers know.
