For many captives, a key driver of feasibility and success is the availability of affordable fronting services and managing the collateral required in these arrangements. In this webinar we will explore the need for fronting and collateral and what is important in a fronting relationship. Specific topics covered will include:

  • Why captives need a front and for what coverages?
  • The market for fronting
  • Why is collateral needed?
    • Understanding the regulatory requirements
  • What are typical collateral requirements?
    • How much collateral is required, including stacking of collateral across underwriting years?
    • How long is collateral held?
    • What are acceptable forms of collateral?
  • Best practices for a successful fronting relationship

This webinar is suitable for existing captive owners and any prospective captive owner looking to better understand the need for fronting and collateral requirements imposed on captives.
