The Initiative

 

Q: When is Budgeting & Paying Insurance Premiums ever exciting ?

A: When your Commercial Risk Management Program becomes a " work of ART " !

 

More specifically, when your company chooses to invest & participate in a Member Owned Group Captive.

MEMBER OWNED GROUP CAPTIVEs

 

There are many benefits in choosing to on board with a quality Member Owned Group Captive, as opposed to staying the course of paying annual Insurance premiums to Traditional Commercial Carriers - receiving no profit sharing nor dividends in return for good to excellent loss control performance. The core of these benefits are as follows:

 

1. Members are equal owners in their Group Insurance Company. This generally results in upfront premium reductions as operating costs are lower due to efficiencies of service & the overall quality of the members that are approved to join the Group Captive.

2. Members will enjoy the rewards of receiving their Company's underwriting profits as well as investment income.

3. Properly designed, Group Captives provide IRS compliance for risk transfer & risk distribution requirements.

4. Group Captives provide customized claims handling & ongoing loss control services for its Member owners.

5. Members are part of a quality Team of Insureds that work together for towards a mutually prosperous end goal.

6. When structured correctly, Members' gross premiums should be fully tax deductible under IRS code 162.

7. Capital investment for membership into a Group Captive averages $ 25,000 - 36,000 which is far less than the costs required to form a Single Parent Captive.

Inspiration

 

“ I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.” 

Steve Jobs


“When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will see it ?

You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.” 

Steve Jobs
