North Carolina Report 2015

North Carolina has exploded onto the scene as one of the latest United States jurisdictions with captive legislation and is already boasting significant growth in the number of captives being created or re-domiciling there.

The newly formed regulators have grappled with how to make a practical law for captives that would fit with North Carolina’s specific governing structures. The creators of the North Carolina Captive Law claim to have taken the best aspects of its competitors’ regulatory structures to create an effective and appealing insurance domicile.
