Structuring Multinational Insurance Programmes: Anticipating Emerging Global Challenges for Captives
Multinational corporations have long known that traditional avenues of insurance-risk transfer can be efficiently supplemented by “risk financing” rather than self-insurance. Techniques such as the use of large deductibles and self-insured retentions, or the use of a captive (re)insurer are commonplace amongst astute multinational corporations. Captives, in particular, are increasingly seen as an effective risk management option both for organisations that seek cross-border insurance coverage, and for those seeking to insure difficult-to-place risks. Over the past three years, 70% of European risk managers confirm that they have increased their use of captive insurance arrangements.
