What are Group Captives?

Joining a captive insurance group is an alternative way to manage risk—offering control, consistency, and a way to stabilize your cost of risk over time. A group captive is made up of various like-minded businesses that come together to form their own insurance company.  It insures the risks of its members and offers them more oversight over all facets of their insurance program.

Woodruff Sawyer’s captive experts can guide you through an unbiased process to determine whether you’re a good candidate for a captive and will remain with you every step of the way.

Why Consider Captive Insurance

  • Protection from hardening and fluctuations in the market
  • Reduced costs
  • Long-term stability
  • Direct access to reinsurance markets
  • More autonomy in claims management
  • Collaboration with captive members, elevating many best practices internally
  • Greater influence over financial outcomes of the captive
  • Improved safety culture

At Woodruff Sawyer, our goal is to help you decide whether a captive makes sense for your business. We will perform a thorough financial review of your program and then present the different program options to you in an unbiased manner. We don’t have a stake in which product you choose, so our focus is on providing honest, expert counsel to you and your team.
