Atlanta-based captive insurance consultancy Captive Alternatives is number 2,971 on Inc. magazine's 37th annual Inc. 5000, which ranks the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. This is the second time Captive Alternatives appears on the Inc. 5000, with 3-year revenue growth of 137 percent.
