Marsh’s captive advisory professionals can counsel your team on the pros and cons of establishing a captive and advise you of alternative applications that a captive can provide. As a result, you can make more informed decisions before investing in this long-term risk management program.

Our key services include:

  • Feasibility studies.
  • Strategic reviews.
  • Domicile reviews.
  • Exit-strategy studies.

Continually monitoring the insurance market, Marsh’s captive advisory professionals can help you adjust your insurance program to changes in market conditions. We also maintain close working relationships with all major reinsurers, many of whom have business units dedicated to working with alternative insurance facilities such as captives.

Management Services

Location is critical to your captive’s success. Marsh’s captive professionals can recommend the most appropriate domicile, working with you to evaluate your business goals, as well as your potential domiciles’ infrastructure, tax structures, and treaties. Once you have selected a domicile, a designated team led by our captive management professionals guides the process, from incorporation to active day-to-day management.

Marsh has built long-lasting relationships with key service providers such as actuaries, attorneys, and auditors — all of whom are essential to the smooth operation of a captive.

We offer a wide range of services, including:

  • Strategic management.
  • Accounting.
  • Insurance-policy management.
  • Claims management.
  • Regulatory compliance.
Actuarial Services

Actuaries are a vital piece of any captive insurer’s operations and support sustainable and effective operations by evaluating multiple issues, including:

  • Loss-reserve certification.
  • Loss funding and pay-out projection.
  • Retention optimisation.
  • Premium allocation.
  • Parent company self-retained liability analysis.

Actuaries also assist in communications with other captive insurance stakeholders such as auditors, insurers, and insurance regulators.

Marsh Captive Solutions' Actuarial Group includes credentialed actuaries and supporting actuarial analysts. Our actuaries consult exclusively with captive and self-insurance programs in numerous global domiciles.
