EY’s Global Captive Network and Americas Captive Insurance Services practice provides clients with a holistic approach to captive insurance planning, evaluates various risk financing structures, and develops feasible and efficient arrangements designed to improve cash flow, enhance risk management and reduce overall economic costs while increasing insurance coverage options. EY’s Global Captive Network is uniquely positioned to efficiently and effectively address any local, regional, cross-border and global insurance risk and associated tax and regulatory matters and advise on planning, feasibility, implementation and utilization opportunities.
Companies operating in the current business environment may find hazards hiding around every corner. To be prudent and prevent economic leakage, entities should proactively identify those hazards and structure their affairs to manage risk in a holistic, tax-efficient manner. With EY’s global integrated approach, you can improve cash flow, reduce expenses and use capital more effectively. Members of the EY Global Captive Network can determine whether your business structure and operations are suited for a captive insurance arrangement, evaluate your current risk financing structures, and develop feasible and efficient alternatives — all to significantly increase your coverage options while improving cash flow and expense management and reducing overall economic costs.
Risk isn’t going away, and neither is uncertainty. You need a plan that weighs all the options so that your organization does not have to settle for high expenses as a necessary cost of doing business, locally or around the globe. Let EY show you how.
