At Captive Insurance Consulting, we have been providing quality service and expert guidance to successful companies since 2006. Our staff guides clients through the process of incorporating risk management techniques, allowing them to take on more calculated risk and become self-insured. This lowers their bottom line costs by turning their insurance premiums into an investment.


A captive insurance company is an insurance provider that is owned and operated by the companies that it insures. Because these carriers like AIG/Zurich/CNA are insuring only a limited amount of risk, premium costs are far more predictable. We have also found that companies having trouble getting insurance at any price due to the high-risk services they provide, such as roofing or tree trimming, are able to insure themselves through a captive. A company like this with the safety controls in place might find a much better program through a captive.


Our office has more than 80 years of combined experience handling the needs of “best in class” businesses. The CIC staff guides clients through the captive approval process one client at a time. By allowing clients to take on more calculated risk and become an insurance owner these captive members can lower their bottom line costs by turning their insurance premiums into an investment.


We trust our partners to help your company build its own powerful alliances. CIC places tremendous value our own partnerships with some of the top firms in the United States. Their commitment to service and excellence matches our own, allowing us to offer our clients truly comprehensive insurance solutions.
