What Is A Captive Insurance Company?
A captive is a unique but REAL casualty insurance company. It includes its own corporation, insurance license, reserves, policies, policyholders, and claims. It is a formal way for business owners to self-insure, and captives are generally formed to insure the risks of owners and related or affiliated third parties.
There are many risks that all businesses regularly face and informally self-insure. It’s worth noting that businesses informally self-insure with after tax dollars, meaning that a businesses’ “rainy day fund” is usually comprised of retained earnings that have already been taxed. With a captive in place, businesses can formally insure risks not normally insured by third party insurers.
