New Captive Formations Continue Steady Pace in 2017

28 February 2018

  • Domiciles Continue Captive Formations in 2017

Even with a soft commercial market,  U.S. and offshore domiciles continued to see a steady flow of new captive insurance company formations.

“With so many domiciles to choose from, it is important to match companies’ needs in a captive insurance domicile with a domicile’s strengths and experience,” said JLT Insurance Management (USA) LLC CEO Guy Ragosta. “An experienced captive insurance manager can help with this decision.”

JLTIM USA’s poll of captive insurance domiciles and statistics from industry publications show the following number of new formations in 2017: Arizona, 11; Bermuda, 17; Cayman Islands, 33; Hawaii, 30; Missouri, 8; Montana, 42; Nevada, 22; North Carolina, 57; South Carolina, 15; Tennessee, 9; Texas; 8; Utah, 60; Vermont, 24; and Washington D.C. 8. 

Please note some of the domiciles listed have included the total number of captives with new cells, other domiciles have listed only new captives without the number of new cells.
Other domiciles will continue to report their growth in 2017 throughout the next few weeks.
