WHAT IS A CAPTIVE?

A captive insurance company (Captive) is designed to insure the business and related risks of a small (and usually related) group of insureds. Captives can be formed either in the United States or in a foreign jurisdiction. Captives are typically formed by companies when business insurance for a certain commercial risk cannot be obtained through traditional insurance markets.
