An affinity organization is formed around a shared interest or goal, to which individuals formally or informally belong. Some common examples include alumni associations, business groups, and military organizations.

In addition to these, affinity organizations also include:

  • Trade associations: An organization founded and funded by businesses that operate in a specific industry.
  • Franchises: Created when a franchisor licenses its business model and brand to other franchisees.

To better pursue members' interests, affinity group leaders should look toward an insurance scheme designed around their unique needs and risks.

Affinity insurance provides policies unique to the members of the group. By pooling together risk, participants are able to reduce the costs of coverage.

These insurance schemes are formed when a group of individuals or entities come together to jointly own a captive insurance company. For organizations or individuals who lack the resources to create their own captive, a group scheme offers minimized risk, increased coverage, and lower costs.

By creating a program specific to your own group, your organization is able to build a customizable plan that offers the solutions to risk areas that more generic policies likely will not address.

Affinity insurance offers pricing stability, insurance coverage stability, and improved services.

A cost-effective insurance scheme, designed exclusively around the interest of your customers, members, or franchisees, can help you pursue your own business objectives and enhance the reputation of your company or organization. By providing this added value, you can strengthen relationships, helping you attract and retain loyal members.

A new affinity insurance scheme can also create an additional income stream for your business by introducing a structure that pays commission to you.

When creating a scheme that directly benefits members of your affinity group, it's crucial to consider any membership requirements and any other unique considerations, business protections, and pricing.

After deciding to form an affinity insurance scheme, you’ll need a captive manager to lead the process.
