Is a Captive the Ideal Insurance Solution to Finance Your Risks?


Deciding on your risk financing strategy and exploring whether or not a captive is a suitable vehicle to manage your retained risk are key decisions. This is why, as the first step in any recommendation, Willis completes a detailed feasibility study, prepares a risk retention analysis and undertakes extensive financial modeling on your behalf.

Working with your organization, we will provide answers to key questions, such as:

  • What is the optimum level of retained risk for your business?

  • How should this risk be financed?

  • What are the specific benefits of a captive or an alternative structure?

  • What are the best solutions currently available?

  • How valid will these solutions remain when important variables like corporation tax, insurance premium tax or interest rates change?

  • Will these solutions stand up to regulatory scrutiny?

  • How can you fairly allocate premiums across your business units to both promote effective risk management and optimize capital allocation decisions?

Our Feasibility Study Enables you to Make an Informed Decision


Only by answering these key questions can truly informed risk financing decisions be taken; while no-one knows the future for certain, our sophisticated financial modeling techniques provide the most reliable predictors in the business. These analytical tools, refined to a high level of precision, provide an ideal mechanism to enable businesses to continually adjust their risk management strategy, so that cover, cost and premium allocation are optimized not just now, but also into the future.
