Captives & Risk Retention Groups

The benefits of a captive or risk retention group program are dependent on proper structuring and type of industry, making it critical to partnering with an expert in alternative risk.

Our G&A Alternative Risk unit helps clients join, create or grow risk retention groups and captive programs and effectively craft customized coverage terms.

In traditional commercial insurance, a client pays premiums to an insurance carrier who then bears risk for premiums paid. With an alternative risk scenario, such as a captive or risk retention group, a client pays a similar premium but also has the opportunity “earn back” those premiums with investment income—if they have good loss experience. This offers the client stability associated with long-term cost of risk.  We’ve written potential distributions to clients approaching $10 million.

Captives & risk retention groups work favorably in certain industries, and our experienced team can help you determine whether Alternative Risk is the best approach for your organization.
