Captiva assists clients in setting up and managing captive insurance companies in Cayman, the British Virgin Islands, and Anguilla. Together we can look at the feasibility of setting up a captive, find an appropriate jurisdiction, and lead you through the process of establishing and operating a captive insurance company.

Captiva has been managing captive insurance companies for over thirty years. With operations in the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and Anguilla, and with relationships in the Isle of Man, Bermuda, Guernsey, Gibraltar and Singapore, Captiva offers responsive services combined with years of experience offshore.

Captiva employs a dedicated team of specialists with expertise in risk management, insurance, legal and accounting, and deals with the formation and administration of a portfolio of a diverse set of clients. We offer a comprehensive range of personal and confidential services to individuals and corporate clients, including administrative services for all types of offshore companies, banks, trusts, mutual funds and investors.

In addition to managing traditional captive insurance companies, over the years Captiva Managers has built particular expertise in establishing and managing segregated portfolio companies or SPCs (sometimes known as protected cell companies or PCCs in other jurisdictions) and currently manages in excess of fifty segregated cells.

Life insurance is an essential component of wealth management. Life insurance contracts are an excellent way to help save, invest and protect funds for the next generation, i.e. for asset protection and estate planning purposes. Captiva offers high net worth individuals’ strategic estate planning through various life products. The tax advantages of these products can encompass an extremely broad range of investment options.

With a wealth of experience in cross-border transactions, we specialise in corporate services, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, liquidations, corporate finance, insurance and hedge funds. The firm’s expertise in a wide range of other areas enables us to focus on the needs of our clients. We take pride in assisting clients to find innovative solutions to complex problems. We are committed to providing quality advice and services in a prompt and efficient manner. Our clients rely on us because they know that we can get the job done.
