2018 – The State of the Captive Insurance Market


2017 was a pivotal year for the captive insurance industry with continued scrutiny on 831(b) captives and the passage of US tax reform at the end of the year. What impact did these changes have in 2017 on an industry which has been very resilient in light of other market and tax changes. In this webinar we take a look at the trends in the captive industry and growth by sector and domicile. We will conclude with predictions for 2018.

Specific topics to be covered will include:

  • Analysis of captive activity in 2017
  • Discussion of major trends affecting the industry
  • Review of the major captive domiciles, both onshore and offshore.
  • European captive market developments
