Your voice matters

Typically, at board meetings members approve renewal terms, conditions and financial statements, develop and refine risk management standards, recognize safety excellence and set overall growth and strategic direction of the captive.

It has always been Captive Resources’ view that group captives should be owned and run solely by their members, which supports a central captive purpose of providing the members control. Decisions are made by the member-owners, not by Captive Resources, any service provider or external third party. Each member has one seat on the captive’s Board of Directors and one vote which is cast at the Board meetings, where a simple majority governs. Members find this an attractive feature since each one, regardless of premium size, has the same voice.

In addition, a strong committee structure allows for even greater individual participation by captive insurance members according to their specific interest or personal expertise. Captives typically have Underwriting, Finance & Investment, Risk Control, and Membership Development committees that bring their recommendations to the Board for review and discussion by the entire membership. Ad-hoc committees are often formed as needed for special initiatives or projects.
