Captive management throughout the United States.

The Gordon Companies are a licensed Captive Insurance manager, which provides consulting services for captive and risk retention formation and manages all aspects of captive insurance company operations.

Captive insurance has nothing to do with kidnapping. Rather, it’s a completely different way for a business to insure against risks. In effect, the business sets up a separate legal entity (a “captive insurance company”) that acts as the insurer itself, rather than taking out a policy with a traditional insurance company.

Common reasons for doing this include:

  • Having greater control over insurance costs
  • Covering risks that mainstream insurers don’t or won’t cover at a viable premium cost
  • Removing the headaches of waiting for claims to be processed and the risk of payout disputes
  • Possible tax advantages

Legally, the business itself will own and control the captive insurance company. In practice, it often makes sense to get outside experts to oversee the day-to-day management. This is partly to reduce the administration and bureaucracy involved and partly because managers can lend their insight on ways to improve the tax position and avoid any legal pitfalls.

Our firm also coordinates Reinsurance & Excess Insurance. For over 20 years I. David Gordon Associates has managed the Delaware Professional Insurance Company, which now writes over $3 million in insurance premiums.
