What is a captive?

Make data-driven decisions with a captive insurance program

Joining a captive insurance program allows you to align with other companies to form a larger group, effectively increasing your negotiating power in the insurance marketplace.

Moreton & Company has the greatest amount of experience and expertise, in both forming and managing captives in the Intermountain West. We offer innovative tools and systems designed to give you optimal control over your costs and create stability over time. This level of transparency with captive insurance programs empowers you to more effectively direct coverage decisions and maximize returns by proactively identifying strategic opportunities.

We work with our clients to form wholly owned captives that allow you to self-administer your own coverage and self-finance your risk portfolio. Our captive partners are helping our insureds reduce their operating costs through underwriting and funding options, take control of their claims, and more precisely direct their loss control and safety efforts.

Our captive experience began in the mid-1980s. We formed, and still manage, the first employee benefits captive in Utah and the first and second property & casualty captives in Utah. Utah is currently the second largest captive domicile in the nation, and the fourth largest worldwide.

What are the advantages of captive insurance for employee benefits?

With an employee benefits captive insurance program, the captive assumes some of the risk that stop-loss insurers usually cover. By retaining the cash flow that is typically paid as premiums, employers can better control premium costs, reduce unnecessary expenses, and capture savings from underwriting.

Joining a captive for employee benefits allows you to have a better grasp on your risk, while retaining the traditional advantages of self-funding. You have the option to keep the plan designs, carriers, and plan administrators you are working with so that your employees do not experience disruption, while still gaining access to more transparent data on what is driving claims.

What are the advantages of captive insurance for commercial insurance?

A captive insurance program for commercial insurance works by aligning organizations who have similar risk profiles. Their combined strength gives the captive the ability to self-insure some of those unique risks, recapturing funds that typically would be paid to insurance companies. This arrangement gives each member of the captive significantly greater control and transparency over their insurance costs without compromising their stability and growth.

At Moreton & Company, we currently administer risk management captives for clients with various needs, including extended warranties, terrorism coverage, large deductible reimbursement, commercial market replacement programs, and others. We have the staff, the expertise, and the vision to help you decide if a captive is the best option for you.
