Risk ManagementAs a risk management tool, captives have been in existence for decades and are now well established. In addition, captive owners today put their captives to more sophisticated use than ever before. Today, captives are being used by entities such as corporates, charitable organizations, trade associations, and insurance groups of all sizes. These range from multinationals to Fortune 500 companies to medium-sized business organizations. Practically every risk insured by a traditional commercial insurer could be insured by a captive insurer. The level of supervision that is necessary therefore, varies accordingly.

There exist multiple definitions and interpretations of captive insurance in the insurance world today, but one of the definitions widely used globally is the one used by the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (“IAIS”). The IAIAS defines a captive insurer as “an insurance or reinsurance entity created and owned, directly or indirectly, by one or more industrial, commercial or financial entities, the purpose of which is to provide insurance or reinsurance cover or risks of the entity or entities to which it belongs, or for entities connected to those entities and only a small part, if any, of its risk exposure is related to providing insurance or reinsurance to other parties.”
