The survey produced a number of headline results relating to themes ranging from Solvency II and concerns around the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (Beps) project to the future of the 831(b) market in the United States and re-domestication activity.

The full survey results also lifts the lid on the captive types, and in what proportion, that make up the 6,655 risk bearing entities (RBEs) represented in the survey and the proportion of cell companies that are owned or managed for a third-party by the managers.

“Although the number of participating managers in this year’s survey is slightly down on 2015, this is partly down to consolidation within the industry,” Richard Cutcher, editor of Captive Review, said.

“This is best demonstrated by Artex which acquired Kane and Hexagon PCC in the past 12 months, both of whom were regular participants in our annual industry survey.

“Those managers that have taken part have shared more information than ever before with us, helping Captive Reviewportray an accurate reflection of the state of market and some of the key trends and themes in 2016.  I thank them for the time, care and attention that they gave their responses.”
