Captives as an Alternate Risk Financing Technique

Virtual Workshop




Risk managers are working with more data now than ever before. Data, combined with the growing availability of alternative risk solutions, can—and oftentimes does—result in more robust risk finance strategies. And more robust risk finance strategies equals more resilient organizations.

But first, risk managers and the c-suite as a whole must understand how to use alternative risk financing techniques, the most common being captives. Captives offer benefits such as stabilization of costs, ability to earn investment income, access to coverage not available in the market and improved claims handling and risk control, among others. This workshop dives deep into the opportunities and risks associated with captive formation and use, and how alternative risk financing can support your organization’s goals.
