Group Captives for Contractors: Stability in an Unstable World

Contractors across the country are being impacted by changing dynamics in the economy, such as worker shortages, inflation, and supply chains.

As 2023 began, analysts were predicting a continued trend of rising insurance costs on top of these other challenges. Contractors that focus on safety with proven results can realize greater stability on a significant portion of their annual insurance costs when they go from “renting” insurance to “owning” their insurance company in the group captive model.

After this session, you will be able to:

  • Outline the basics of the group captive structure, including the financial risks and rewards that captive ownership offers
  • Compare and contrast the traditional insurance marketplace with the captive marketplace strategy
  • Discover how contractors throughout the country have stabilized and reduced their insurance costs, become safer companies, and generate a return on their insurance premiums
  • Illustrate the intangible benefits of the “group” dynamic of the captive structure, identifying best practices
