Selecting a Captive Manager

Stewart Feldman
February 06, 2019

A new Captive Thought Leader Video featuring Stewart Feldman, CEO and general counsel of Capstone Associated Services, Ltd., titled "How To Select a Captive Manager," has recently been added to the Captive.com video library.  

Mr. Feldman advises that a prospective captive owner should consider a number of factors before selecting a captive management team. There is no commonly accepted definition of a captive manager and its responsibilities. However, a captive owner or prospective captive owner should ensure that someone has responsibility for the overall planning, including insurance, legal, tax, regulatory, claims handling and management, financial reporting, and compliance.  

The captive manager should also be evaluated on its track record of success and its experience level as well as its approach to feasibility studies. There are also many moving parts in forming and designing a captive insurance company. Costs include actuarial, underwriting, claims handling, pooling, legal, tax, audits, and captive redesign as tax and state laws change. A captive manager should have a good handle on all of the moving parts and all of the associated costs.

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.
