Tom Jones, Tim Padovese and Derick White
With greater scrutiny of captives, many captives including the adoption of the NAIC corporate governance standards for risk retention groups are re-examining their corporate governance practices. In this webinar we review the need for a corporate governance framework and discuss best practices for governance in both a single parent and group captive setting. Specific topics covered include:
- Definition and goals of corporate governance.
- Governance requirements.
- The role, composition and duties of the Board of Directors.
- The need for and activities of independent directors.
- Governance documentation.
- Corporate governance in practice: OMIC case study.
This webinar is suitable for existing and prospective captives in understanding acceptable corporate governance standards. It is also appropriate for anyone serving on or thinking of serving on a captive board in better understanding his/her role and duties as a director.
