Captive Formation: An Actuary's Point of View
Derek Freihaut May 13, 2021 Posted in: Blog Posts, Captives, News

What are the most important considerations for a company when starting a captive? On April 28, I participated in a roundtable discussion hosted by Captive Review, conferring with other experts in captive formation about planning a successful captive. From an actuarial point of view, communication is key. Not only should all projections be documented, but all details, analyses, methods and other important communications must be clear and understandable. Insurance and actuarial reports are not always intuitive for new captive owners, so comprehensible communication of financial considerations to captive owners is paramount.

Cyber Insurance – What’s In Store for Captives

Much like with auto insurers in the early 20th Century, it’s only been recently that the insurance industry has realized how significant—in both size and importance—cyber exposures are.

Farmers are even relying on technological advancements like drones, robots and gene editing in their operations.

Reflections on the 2019 DCIA Spring Forum
Michael Paradiso June 10, 2019 Posted in: Blog Posts, Captives, News
The Delaware Captive Insurance Association (DCIA) held its Spring Forum May 7-8 at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware. Captive service providers, captive owners and Delaware’s captive regulators gathered in attendance for sessions covering a range of relevant topics. The conference carried regulation as its unofficial theme, perhaps not unexpectedly, with each session analyzing a different aspect or angle. The impact of politics on captive regulatory decisions, the legal hurdles of insuring the key players of the cannabis industry, and the various state-specific treatments of self-procurement tax were a few of the topics covered.
