Currently, Nevada has over 200 active captive insurers. As one of the country’s oldest captive domiciles, Nevada enjoys a strong working relationship with service providers from around the world. In recent years, Nevada has seen rapid growth in captive utilization by many important new segments of our state and national economy, e.g. bio-tech, alternative energy, multi-national transportation and manufacturing as well as significant growth in captives for financial institutions. Nevada continues to lead the nation in formations of risk retention groups. Nevada also offers some of the very best regulatory options for captive formations including series LLC’s and segregated cell captive plans. When added to Nevada’s expedited approval process and nation-leading program support, Nevada continues growing its captive programs to support healthy risk alternative programs.
