Segregated cell/protected cell captives

Jump to: navigation, search

Some captive insurance companies are structured to allow a legal segregation of underwriting accounts (or “cells”) from each other. Segregated cell companies can be single-parent captives, rental captives or group captives. The formal requirements for structuring a segregated cell captive will be defined by the domicile in which the captive is licensed to operate.

Capital requirement and bankruptcy protection are two reasons captive owners choose this structure.
