Captive Insurance 101


What do 80% of the Fortune 100 and thousands of middle market businesses do to manage risk better, improve cash flow, and reduce insurance costs? Answer: They look at captive insurance.

For a profitable business, a captive insurance arrangement can be a powerful risk management tool that also provides potentially significant tax and other benefits. Barnes & Thornburg lawyers invite you to attend an informative webinar focused on what captive insurance is, associated benefits such as insurance, risk transfer, litigation and other benefits, and recent court decisions that affect the laws surrounding captives. Captive insurance policies cover risks of the operating business that are often not available in the commercial insurance market or may prove too costly to obtain, such as:

  • loss of key vendors or major contracts
  • cybersecurity breaches
  • expenses to repair media reputational damage
  • adverse financial consequences of legislative and regulatory changes
  • loss of franchise license or lease.

The speakers will provide practical insight on starting, operating and maximizing a captive and address the various tax implications associated with captive insurance. This 60-minute CLE will leave attendees with the framework for a solid program, best practices, and an understanding of how to avoid pitfalls.
