Like any insurance company, captives have investments to fund the reserves.

Retain Key Employees
Occasionally, business owners will award a key employee or two by giving them equity in the captive as part of an overall strategy to retain those employees for the benefit of the business.

Administer Claims On Your Own Terms
Captive insurance membership allows business owners to participate in the administration of their own claims - on their own terms, getting on top of claims quickly, and allowing members to be proactive.

Choose Your Own Counsel

Since the business owners control the captive, they can select the counsel of their choice to handle particular claims.
