The Hawaii Captive Insurance Council, a nonprofit corporation since 1991, is committed to promoting, developing, and maintaining a quality captive insurance industry in the State of Hawaii. In partnership with the State of Hawaii Insurance Division, the HCIC provides information and education on issues affecting captives, and assists the State of Hawaii in promoting Hawaii as a quality captive domicile on the local, national and international level.
The HCIC supports Hawaii as a world-class captive domicile. We provide meaningful benefits to our members. Through our efforts, Hawaii is a leading captive domicile of the highest quality, known for its reliable regulatory approach and captive-business friendly environment. Our membership is actively involved and engaged in all aspects of the captive industry – where business and government work hand-in-hand towards a common goal with unity, shared involvement and responsibility, while surrounded by the natural beauty of Hawaii.
The HCIC is also evolving as a leader in the US domestic captive market through its collaboration with other recognized and respected domiciles and industry experts. HCIC is also widely respected for its educational prowess. HCIC’s annual educational Forum in Hawaii attracts the most diverse collection of owners, service providers and industry experts from all over the world.
