Missouri is the premier captive domicile in Mid-America with more direct flights in and out of the state than most major captive domiciles. With an experienced staff, low examination cost, and flexible laws allowing individualized company regulation, the Captive Program of the Missouri Department of Commerce and Insurance has the ability to provide the level of regulation needed for nearly any situation.
