Forming and managing a captive is no small task; it requires a long-term commitment. Marsh has captive professionals who work with you to determine whether a captive is right for your organization, and then work hand-in-hand with your legal and financial representatives to help form and manage the captive facility within the proper tax and accounting guidelines. Through comprehensive feasibility studies, Marsh’s skilled captive consulting professionals counsel clients on the pros and cons of captive formation, enabling them to make informed decisions before investing in this long-term risk management program and consulting with them on the multiple alternative applications that a captive can provide.
Marsh’s captive consulting professionals continually monitor insurance market conditions and assist clients in tailoring their insurance programs to adjust to changes in those conditions. Marsh also maintains close working relationships with all of the major reinsurers, many of which have specific business units dedicated to working with alternative insurance facilities such as captives.
Once you’ve made the decision to develop a captive, choosing the appropriate location is critical to its success. Marsh’s captive professionals assist organizations in selecting the proper domiciles. We will work with you to evaluate your organization’s business goals and geographic location and the potential captive domiciles’ infrastructure, tax structures, and treaties. Once your organization has decided on the domicile, a designated team led by Marsh’s captive management professionals guides the process from incorporation to active day-to-day management. Marsh has been assisting captives for 50 years. We have built long lasting relationships with key service providers such as actuaries, attorneys, and auditors—all essential to the smooth operation of a captive.
Our Marsh Captive Solutions Actuarial Group comprises credentialed actuaries and supporting actuarial analysts. Our actuaries consult exclusively with captive and self-insurance programs in numerous global domiciles. Actuarial services are a vital piece of a captive insurer’s operations. Actuaries support the sustainable and effective operation of captive insurers by evaluating the reasonableness of unpaid loss reserves and premium, captive feasibility, transfer of risk, capital adequacy, and a myriad of other issues including assistance with communicating with other captive insurance stakeholders such as auditors, insurers, and insurance regulators.
With experts who understand your unique risks, the resources to deliver the most comprehensive captive management solutions, and the most talented, dedicated people in the business, Marsh is here to help your business gain freedom from commercial insurance markets — and to achieve the rewards that lie on the other side of risk.
