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. Beecher Carlson’s Captive 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.
Beecher Carlson has 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.
Beecher Carlson manages more than 130 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

- Regulatory compliance
- Operational oversight
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.
