Captive

Definition

A captive insurance company is a wholly owned subsidiary company that provides risk-mitigation services for its parent company or a group of related companies. A captive insurance company may form if the parent company cannot find an outside firm to insure them against particular business risks, if the premiums paid to the captive insurer creates tax savings, or if the insurance provided is more affordable or offers better coverage for the parent company's risks.
