Advanced Captive Report 2017

The contributions to this Advanced Captive report serve to inform readers how they can evolve their captives beyond the traditional uses.

Greater digitisation of a captive can work to streamline business processes and help simplify data analysis, enabling managers to harness this information more readily and bring greater value to the parent.

With the right enhancements, a captive can become a true entity-wide riskbearing vehicle that, with front-end diversification and structured reinsurance on the back-end, can reduce risk volatility.

The need for a disciplined investment programme is a further matter under scrutiny.

The expert advice contained within will help readers to operate their captives more effectively, and help safeguard the vehicles throughout their lifetime.
