If it feels like you’re paying more for everything – including insurance – EPIC can help ease your financial pain. Thousands of companies have gained stability and control with alternative risk financing strategies such as captives. EPIC offers a wide range of self-insurance approaches and a full menu of captive solutions. We help you determine if a captive insurance company is feasible for your business, and how to structure and manage it.

What is Captive Insurance?

A captive is an insurance company owned and controlled by its insureds. High-performing captives can reduce loss expenses, lower insurance premiums, and protect organizations from unstable market conditions.

Two Key Types of Captives:

Group Captives

Group captive insurance companies are typically owned by privately held firms and help spread financial exposure across areas such as workers’ compensation, general liability, and vehicle claims. Each group member contributes capital to separate funds for routine and catastrophic claims.

Benefits:
  • Retained ownership and cost control
  • Reduce impact of hard/soft market cycles
  • Lower pricing volatility
  • Final costs based on actual losses
  • Retention of underwriting profits and investment income
  • Lower operating costs

Single-Parent Captives

Captive insurance companies that are owned by a single corporation or business unit are called single-parent captives. Historically popular with multinational companies, more and more small and medium-sized businesses are taking advantage of the benefits of single-parent captives.

Benefits:
  • Retention of underwriting profits and investment income
  • Alternative risk financing
  • Underwriting stability
  • Risk management enhancement
  • Control over the claims process and premiums paid
  • Availability of coverage otherwise difficult or impossible to find
  • Cost reductions
  • New revenue and cash flow streams
  • Competitive advantages
