Global Programmes Report 2018

The expert contributors featured within the Captive Review Global Programmes report are focused on guiding readers to best prepare for, and meet, the evolving challenges affecting large corporates and their insurance requirements.

With multinational business the norm, firms are tasked with raising the bar to ensure regulatory compliance is met and to cater for increasingly sophisticated client demands.

Due to steadily decreasing premium rates, the insurance and reinsurance markets are also beginning to change. With this rising pressure and the likelihood of greater consolidation, there is a growing desire for corporates to use their captives more actively.

As a result, enlisting a fronting partner capable of supporting captive managers and owners through the likes of the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (Beps) regime, is becoming essential.

Elsewhere, the potential implications of the incoming IFRS 17 rule on captives are outlined, along with the steps firms can take to ensure the wellbeing of their frequent-flying employees.

We hope this report will give readers valuable insight into how best to structure and manage their global programmes, maximise captive efficiency, and ensure multi-jurisdictional compliance measures are met.
