While captive insurance companies have been used by large companies for over 60 years, their use by small and medium sized companies is still in its infancy. There are numerous reason for this, but perhaps the most important is the simple lack of knowledge.
A captive insurance company offers the potential insured a number of benefits, which include:
1.) Filling gaps in current insurance coverage
2.) Giving the insured the ability to control the claims process
3.) Giving the insured the ability to write their own insurance contracts
4.) Providing a degree of asset protection
5.) Creating another corporate profit center
6.) Giving the client a degree of tax mitigation
