What is a Captive?
It is a property casualty insurance company that is formed to cover only the risks of the parent company. The Captive Structure covers only "enterprise risks" that are low frequency but high severity. Examples for agriculture could be: product contamination, business interruption, product recall, mechanical breakdown, transit risks, crop insurance, etc. Other industries would have different enterprise risks.
How does a Captive work?
Premiums paid to the captives are tax deductible, if reasonable, by the parent company. A captive must invest its surplus like an insurance company.
What are the primary benefits of a Captive?
The primary business purpose is to manage risks and to change an expense into a profit center by combining a captive with your current commercial insurance.
What is the first step?
DPIS is engaged through a feasibility process that includes a review of all your existing commercial coverages.
What is the cost?
The cost of a feasibility study would be determined at the time of engagement, and would be applied to the initial set up fee of the captive should the client choose to move forward.Close
