​​Captive Resources, LLC (CRI) is an independent group captive insurance consultant dedicated to empowering businesses to lower their total cost of risk and develop safer workplaces. For nearly four decades, we've helped companies take control of their insurance programs through the creation, development, and oversight of group captive insurance companies. Our member-owned group captive model allows businesses to become insurance company owners rather than insurance policy buyers. 

CRI currently provides consulting services to 45 casualty and medical stop loss group captives, comprised of more than 6,000 member-companies with $3.8 billion in annual premium. These captives have returned more than $3.5 billion in dividends to their member-owners since inception. We support every aspect of the captives we advise — from claims advocacy to operational oversight, risk management, financial services, regulatory compliance, investment services, and more — to ensure that each captive is exceptionally well run, financially sound, and well-positioned for the future.
