Brown & Brown

Brown & Brown’s Captive Management and Consulting team takes an innovative approach to addressing your insurance cost, coverage and profit goals. Strategies to help meet those goals can include increasing risk retention through the use of a captive, increasing or decreasing limits of insurance, blending various lines of coverage in an integrated program, or possibly transferring more risk.

Taking a Holistic Approach to Alternative Risk Financing

In today’s highly competitive, margin-driven market, it pays to explore the alternatives to traditional insurance. One alternative is the use of a captive to increase your return on investment. Brown & Brown's Captive Management and Consulting practice will review your insurance buying trends and analyze your data to help you determine if a captive fits your needs. We will provide the resources to help you design and implement an effective and efficient captive solution that addresses your insurance cost, coverage, and profit goals. We manage our resources to provide you with specific, tailored solutions to help you achieve your organizational goals.

We have been successful in radically changing the way our corporate partners finance risk. We’ve been successful in disrupting the industry while focusing on key drivers:

  • Improve earnings per share (EPS)
  • Optimize the utilization of captive insurers
  • Integrate specific excess reinsurance of the captive
  • Cap retained losses on a per occurrence and aggregate basis (stop loss)

We have been leading the charge in viewing risk holistically – not just on a line-by-line basis, but rather considering total cost of risk (TCOR) and mitigating the volatility around the aggregated retained level of risk.

The Captive Management and Consulting Practice manages more than 160 insurance entities in all major North American domiciles, and we are ranked among the largest captive managers in the world as measured by number of entities managed and by premium volume. Our comprehensive approach includes the following components:

  • Alternative risk consulting
  • Financial reporting
  • Strategic initiatives
  • Policy and coverage review
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Operational oversight and domicile reviews
  • Captive "health checks"

We are the only manager to invest in an annual audit of our policies and procedures and we are proud to have consistently received a clean opinion on our SOC 1 Type 2 Report since 2006.
