Captives solutions

Single-parent captives

In addition to traditional Single-parent captive solutions, Zurich offers a vast range of solutions that give you coverage tailored specifically to your captive. Zurich’s captive services helps you optimize the value of your captive, with:

  • A broad range of fronting, reinsurance, claims, Risk Engineering and loss-analysis services for single-parent captives
  • Support from a global network of customer services, including coordination with Zurich’s captive/ART unit in Europe
  • Integration with Zurich’s business insurance, with emphasis on the design and implementation of international risk management programs
  • Multinational protocols that help align your captive program with local insurance regulations
  • Corporate life, pension and accident and health benefits for your workplace

Sponsored cell captives

The Zurich Sponsored cell captive can deliver flexibility, reduced pricing volatility and the ability to customize corporate risk management strategies in ways better aligned with the changing risk management needs of corporate customers today. Integrating the features of a newly formed cell company created exclusively for this loss-sensitive alternative, this solution can provide customers with a risk management approach that many mid-sized and even larger corporations may not have pursued in the past due to the belief that the complexity and costs of program implementation and administration would be prohibitive. This program structure is both simple and cost effective.

Other captive products

Depending on the makeup of your risk profile, a holistic solution may better protect your company than a single-parent or group captive. Zurich assesses and serves various types of captives through the use of independently owned Segregated Portfolio Companies (SPC).

With the SPC option, we help our customers mitigate the cost of forming and maintaining a captive facility. The Segregated Portfolio Company creates individual captive "cells" that are separate from each other but linked to the captive, segregating the assets and liabilities of each cell and protecting participants against another cell's insolvency or bad loss experience.

The SPC option is right for homogeneous and heterogeneous captives, including:

  • Multiple-member
  • Single-member
  • Agency
  • Program administrator
  • Association
