Learn the definition of captive insurance and how implementing a captive plan works for YOUR business.

 What is Captive Insurance? - A Definition

Captive insurance is an independent insurance company owned and controlled by its members. The captive insures risks of its owners/members by covering predictable losses and transferring away catastrophic, unpredictable losses.

For example, if Acme Industries, Alpha Brands and American Corporation form a captive insurance company called AAA Insurance Company, AAA is just like any other business insurer, except the only companies it covers are Acme, Alpha and American.

This benefits all three companies in two ways:

  1.   It gives them a level of control over their insurance the traditional market does not provide
  2.   It offers them access to the money generated by AAA’s investments.

What We Do for YOU

Alternative Risk Resources’ brokers match your firm with an already formed captive insurance company. If your business’s risk profile is acceptable to Acme, Alpha and American, they can let you become a part owner of AAA, be insured by it and share in the income it generates.

Explaining Basic Captive Insurance Concepts and Applications

Group Captive Insurance Program Plan

Group Captive Insurance

Group captive insurance is beneficial for companies seeking to control their ever fluctuating/increasing insurance costs. Alternative Risk Resources services captive programs for a large variety of industries from contracting to manufacturing and distribution to food and hospitality.

Captive insurance costs are lower because premiums are based on a member’s individual loss experience which insulates companies from traditional pricing fluctuations.

Other qualities taken into consideration for qualification in a captive include:

  • Long-term financial strength and stability
  • Solid commitment to safety and loss prevention
  • Better than average loss experience in your industry
  • Casualty premiums ranging from $100,000 to over $6,000,000

Speak with our experienced professionals about how captive insurance companies work, and we'll outline how revamping your current organizational structure can help you turn a larger annual profit, and foster and greater safety culture. Read more -->

Benefits of Forming a Captive Insurance Company

Captive Insurance Company Benefits

Setting up a group captive insurance company means more than simply absorbing your own risk. Self-insurance is not unique to any single business. Every business is already insuring themselves with their own profits. Instead of keeping taxable savings, pay a regular premium for your own supplemental insurance plan and increase the security of your company's financial future. All the while increasing investment income.

Benefits of participating in a captive program include:

  • Lowest operating costs in the insurance industry
  • Premiums based on individual loss experience – NOT market rates or conditions
  • Proactive loss control and claims management – Claims reductions equals premium reduction
  • Complete transparency of all costs
  • Clearly defined and implemented exit strategy
  • Ongoing member/owner education
  • World class service providers and underwriting

831b Micro Captive Insurance Information

All About 831(b) Micro Captives

Whether you like it or not, your company is in the insurance business. Unfunded and underfunded risks are insured by your corporate bank account. Many businesses are unaware of their unfunded risks or are unable to afford coverage for certain risks.

The 831(b) election allows companies to form a private captive to provide coverage while potentially monetizing these risks. Forming its own captive insurance company under the 831(b) election, businesses can pay up to $2.2 million in tax-deductible premiums annually to their captive and cover otherwise unfunded risks.

Long-term underwriting profits from your 831(b) captive turn previously unfunded risks into a profit center.

Alternative Risk Resources works one-on-one to understand your company’s specific insurance needs in order to identify the right captive for your business. We understand better than anyone how micro captives stack up against common types of insurance and investments, and know how to implement it for your specific company and industry to maximize your revenue.
