Is captive insurance right for you?
As the price of commercial insurance grows and policy terms become stricter, organizations are turning to captive insurance. Captives not only reduce insurance costs but can also provide an alternative source of income and cash flow.
But getting up and running — or even determining whether a captive is right for your organization — is no small challenge. And that’s where Wipfli can help. Our dedicated, multi-disciplinary team of captive insurance specialists have years of experience helping our clients design, build and implement captives.
We provide critical services throughout each phase of the captive’s lifecycle:
- Formation: Wipfli evaluates your current insurance risk structure, performs a feasibility study and then begins designing and building your captive. We have a thorough implementation process that takes into account regulations, tax, cash management and more.
- Operation: Once you’re up and running, focus shifts to ongoing operation. Wipfli provides annual tax, accounting and audit services.
- Evaluation: With our periodic health checks, we help you ensure the captive is effective and growing. We assist in reevaluating your initial investment strategy to retarget for the long-term while maintaining regulatory compliance. We also help you reevaluate existing risk and determine whether you should expand your captive.
