Commencing in 2014, Illuminati Trust and Chairman Louis Spagnuolo has partnered with the preeminent advisory firm for Captive Insurance by way of Milton Risk Advisors.

In conjunction with David Milton, Illuminati Trust offers clients A-Z solutions for any and call their captive needs.

Captive insurance companies are special purpose companies established by the parent company or group with the specific objective of insuring risks emanating from their parent group or groups, but they sometimes also insure risks of the group's customers. This is an alternative form of risk management that is becoming a more practical and popular means through which companies can financially protect themselves while having more control over how they are insured.

Captives can be delineated into two major categories, on shore, domiciled in one of the US states who have captive insurance regulation within their respective insurance code, and off shore, operating outside of the US in a in accordance with the laws that govern the captive within that particular domicile. Each domicile has its unique set of benefits and obstacles. Choosing the right domicile is an important step in the formation process.

There are several variations of recognized captive structures operating in many jurisdictions around the world. They may have different names, depending on the jurisdiction, but they act much the same. They are as follows:

  • Single Parent - Underwrites risk of companies solely related to the parent company.
  • Association of Captive - A captive that insures the risk of member organizations of an association and the affiliated companies of those members.
  • Agency Captive - Captive formed by insurance brokers or agents to allow them to participate in the high-quality risk, which they control.
  • Rent-a-Captive - An insurance company that provides access to captive facilities without the user needing to capitalize his own captive. The user pays a fee for the use of the captive facilities and will be required to provide some form of collateral so that the rent-a-captive is not at risk from any underwriting losses suffered by the user.
  • Protected Cell Captive - A captive owned by an insurance company that insures risks of separate participants through the use of protected cells.
  • Risk Retention Group (RRG) - An RRG is a captive insurance company organized for the primary purpose of insuring liability exposures of its group members. Members of the RRG must be engaged in similar business activities (e.g. CPA seeking Errors & Omission insurance).
Today there are an estimated 6,000 captive insurance companies worldwide, with a significant number being formed in the last several years.
