Rising to prominence during the challenging liability insurance markets of the 1980s, captive insurance solutions have today become integral components of the risk management programs of an expanding universe of companies across a wide range of industries. Initially utilized as “single-parent” alternative risk solutions owned and operated by large and multinational businesses, captive solutions are now being accessed by a growing number of mid-sized companies focused on building risk management strategies able to better adapt to today’s evolving risks.

This webinar will explore the structures and opportunities inherent in incorporating captive solutions into contemporary risk management strategies. From an exploration of traditional, single-parent captives to the evolution of group captive programs allowing companies to join with others in alliances run by experienced captive managers, this presentation will provide a perspective of the opportunities, benefits, and business case of captive participation. Included will be a look at the intersection of cyber risks market and issues associated with captives.

Note: All downloads and related contact information will be accessible to the webinar sponsor.
