Captives overview

Why Now?

Captive insurance programs can be beneficial to employers in both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ insurance markets. A captive is simply a financial vehicle that allows an employer to pay its actual costs and not a market price. A captive therefore makes sense anytime insurance carriers are charging a large profit component in addition to covering their costs.

The question when deciding whether or not to pursue a captive shouldn’t be:

“Are rates increasing?”

It should be:

“What is the market charging for insurance and what is the actual cost?”

If there is a discrepancy between the market price and actual cost, an employer may be paying too much and a captive insurance program could be the solution.

Garnet Captive can help employers further reduce actual costs by providing results-based loss control and aggressive claims adjusting.
