National Insurance Awareness Day – The Power of a Captive

There are few risk management solutions as powerful (and often misunderstood) as a captive insurance company. A captive, for the right client and risk, can provide enormous value when thoughtfully implemented and managed. Captives typically provide customized coverage that fit the risk management needs of a business or group, while agreeing to take on some or all the risk of loss. Below are three quick takeaways on captive insurance to help guide the initial discussion.

ONE: Captive insurance companies may provide solutions for unique risk typically unavailable or too expensive commercially. A few examples of these risk exposures include business interruption, auto liability, deductible reimbursement, defense cost reimbursement, loss of licensure, legislative and regulatory changes, excess liability, and directors and officers (D&O).

TWO: Through a captive insurance solution, clients are often provided enhanced financial benefits and potential profits year-over-year with demonstrated excellence in risk management and loss control.

THREE: Part of the risk management planning process involves an evaluation of a client’s total cost of risk which includes premiums, self-insured losses, fees, and administrative expenses. Through this process, an integrated approach with commercial policies will help to create a robust risk management profile. Oxford and our independent partners will review existing commercial property and casualty policies and identify exposures, perils, and hazards existing in the organization.
