We are an independent underwriting firm and work with select program managers, brokers, consultants, and captive managers to build proprietary group and single-parent captive programs. We provide stop-loss captive underwriting management to several of the world’s leading stop-loss carriers and can develop customized captive programs with each carrier. Every group captive program that we help develop is highly tailored to meet the specific risk, financial and competitive positioning objectives of our clients. The exclusivity of our carrier relationships and our limitation to select production partnerships help minimize the potential for distribution channel conflicts and significantly enhance your group captive’s market identity and competitive positioning against the “more ubiquitous” captive carriers and programs.
