Captive Insurance is a type of insurance fully owned and controlled by you, the insured, to give you more control over your business’ (or affiliated businesses’) risks and potential losses.
With traditional insurance options, your cover is often at the mercy of your insurer. Your insurer is the one who decides the kind of cover you obtain, the premiums you have to pay, and whether or not you are entitled to your claims.
On the other hand, Captive Insurance allows you to form your own insurance company or ‘captive’, giving you greater control over your insured risks. Captive entities are considered legitimate entities as they are utilised by both Australian and multinational organisations, including private, publicly listed and non-profit organisations.
Captive Insurance is frequently used in conjunction with conventional insurance options and should not be relied upon as a standalone solution for risk management. It can be an advantageous tool to have in your insurance arsenal, but it comes with a high entry barrier. Generally, it's recommended for companies with a strong loss history (and an expectation of continued low losses) and a premium size of at least $1 million.
