A captive insurance company is, in its purest form, a wholly owned legal entity formed to insure or reinsure the risks of its parent and / or associated group companies. Captives are usually formed to provide alternative risk management solutions to that of the conventional insurance market.

By implementing made-to-measure and cost effective employee benefit plans for your staff in your countries of operation, we ensure that our plans are locally compliant and above market standards.
