Companies with strong safety standards and minimal insurance claims are being held back by traditional insurance. If you’re paying more than $200k in insurance and your claims are less than 50% of that premium, a captive can take your company to the next level. Your unused loss funds along with your investment returns go back into your bank account rather than giving it to the insurance company. You gain control of your premiums and build equity in your insurance program. Hear when it’s the right time to change your approach.
