  3. Non-Owned Captive Insurance Sector Set To Expand Rapidly

Non-Owned Captive Insurance Sector Set To Expand Rapidly, New York

08 December 2000

Speaking at the recent 10th Annual World Captive and Alternative Risk Financing Forum in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, Hugh Rosenbaum, a retired Towers Perrins consultant, said that he expected non-owned captive insurance services to be increasingly popular, especially since Bermuda, the largest captive domicile, had now passed segregated account legislation.

Rosenbaum, who was recently inducted into the European Risk Management Hall of Fame, was speaking on basic captive applications for funding property casualty and employee benefits risks. He said that the larger-company market in the US was saturated, but that mid-sized companies were now turning to the captive model, and would be particularly attracted by rent-a-captives and segregated account companies.

Segregated account companies are like rent-a-captives since both provide non-owned captive insurance services. "The high turnout at this conference, together with the reported higher insurance rates, are indications that captive activity will be on the increase in 2001," said Hugh Rosenbaum of Towers Perrin

Segregated account companies have been forming offshore in Guernsey and Cayman and attracting hundreds of new captive-like accounts, according to Rosenbaum. "Now that Guernsey and Cayman have been joined by Bermuda, where classic rent-a-captives have been operating for a long time, I think the era of the non-owned captive insurance company service has come into its own," Rosenbaum added.

Rosenbaum’s presentation was one of a number at the World Captive and Alternative Risk Financing Forum, which also featured sessions on new risks in health care and ways to use advanced financing techniques for captives. Sessions also were held on group captives as well as on employee benefits, pensions and captives. The conference was co-sponsored by Business Insurance, Skandia International Risk Management and Tillinghast – Towers Perrin.
