We Are Devoted to

Seeing Your Business Succeed

In today’s economic and business climate, small to medium sized businesses face the greatest challenges in history, challenges that without proper structural safeguards can sink an otherwise thriving business: litigations at an all-time high, regulatory changes and pressures from every level of government, supply chain interruptions, economic downturns, cyber attacks, geopolitical risks… the list goes on. As a response to this challenging environment, Insurance Specialties consults with closely held businesses to create customized risk programs utilizing captive insurance, a viable, legally sound alternative to commercial insurance. For decades, well known U.S. companies have quietly utilized captive insurance to cost effectively and tax efficiently control risk and build greater financial strength. Every DOW 30 company and over 90% of S&P 500 companies now utilize captive insurance structures.

Why Form a Captive?

  • Take control of your business’ exposure to hidden risks
  • Reduce and control commercial insurance costs
  • Potentially reduce tax liability
  • Build reserves in a protected environment
  • Insurance is a profitable business

Business owners can take a calculated risk that their
claims will be historically consistent, and therefore, they will
not only have more comprehensive insurance coverage, but
build significant reserves over time.
