Online CPE Captive Insurance

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CPE Captive Insurance Webinar. To address cash flow volatility in enterprise risk management, many companies consider captive insurance programs that can be tailor-fitted to their needs. Captive insurance as a type of risk financing helps companies mitigate specific business threats while improving flexibility in responding to risk transfer and retention changes and potentially reducing total cost of risk.

However, forming such self-insurance programs can be challenging.  Captive insurance is a complex, long-term strategy that requires careful research, diligent legal and financial planning, and relationships with regulators and other key partners, along with an in-depth understanding of each company’s unique needs and concerns.  Top priorities including maximizing the return on this decision while being alert to red flags and protecting the company’s reputation.

In a Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss key considerations in forming an efficient captive insurance program for your business.
