CAPTIVE (RE)INSURANCE COMPANIES

Such company is a specialized subsidiary of a non-insurance "Parent": a parent company, holding or association. Its primary goal is to improve risk management of the Parent's business while optimizing cash flows and tax-planning issues.
A captive insurance company (CIC) may be employed as a "straight" insurance vehicle to insure the Parent's risks or as a reinsurance company.
  • underwrite the risks normally not insured or insured on unfavorable terms by an external risks carrier, providing the Parent with a customized cost-effective policy.
  • be used as a means of effective control over claims costs, moving them upward or downward where desirable
  • reduce the Parent's operating expenses
  • provide tax planning elements (in some cases captive insurance costs may be tax deductible)
  • reinsure the risks underwritten by a commercial carrier, while adjusting cash flows of the Parent
  • furnish evidence of being insured required for some commercial operations of the Parent
  • legally override exchange control restrictions when the Parent should pay premiums for the coverage of its actual business risks
  • preserve and invest the premiums received from the Parent.



Furthermore, a typical offshore CIC won't pay any tax neither on investment earnings nor on capital, premiums, and reserves. It is small wonder that the majority of the US business giants listed in the Fortune 500 have captives of their own.
