Tom Cifelli, owner of Captive Experts, said: “I have known Simon Kilpatrick and the Advantage team for many years and have great confidence that they will provide excellent service to our mutual clients. By transitioning its day-to-day captive management duties to Advantage, Captive Experts will be able to dedicate itself to its core captive insurance consulting business.”
