Group Captive Solutions

A tool to empower your business


Joining a group captive to satisfy your primary casualty insurance needs may help your organization to avoid the challenges of cyclical traditional insurance and reduce total cost of risk.

Unlike a traditional insurer, a group captive is not in business to maximize profits. Its purpose is to manage the risks of its member companies, while keeping costs down.

How can a group captive benefit your business?

Group captives can be used for workers’ compensation, commercial auto, and general liability exposures. While each situation can be different, some potential benefits may include:

  • Long-term stability and control
  • Potential cost savings
  • Improved coverage and limits
  • Enhanced claims management and loss control
  • Cash flow advantages
  • Direct access to the reinsurance market
  • Captive Management Services

Not sure how to get started? We can help.

You can count on M&T Insurance to help you proactively manage risk and guide you through identifying an appropriate captive structure and implement a program that works for you. Through our relationships with a variety of captive managers, we have the ability to work with clients to develop innovative solutions:

  • Single parent/pure captives. Insurance companies created by owners of an operating business to provide coverages to the parent and its subsidiaries 
  • Risk retention groups. Member-owned insurance companies for those who engage in similar or related businesses or activities. M&T can write liability insurance for all or any portion of the exposures of group members
  • Association captives. Owned by members of a common industry or trade association that is designed to insure the risks of that industry among the members of the association
  • Group captives. Jointly owned by a number of companies to meet a common insurance need
  • Sponsored/rent-a-captives. Often used for programs too small to justify their own captive
