JULY 15, 2:00pm - Runoff Claims Liability: Financial Closure Mechanisms for Captives and RRGs
The claims liability related to the activities of a captive can be closed in a variety of ways. A captive owner does not have to settle claims, continue to deny or pay them year after year.   They aren't faced with the singular options of having to close their captive or consider selling it. Losses and the management of runoff claims can be assumed be extremely qualified carriers through a variety of transfer processes. The most common of these are referred to as Loss Portfolio Transfers (LPT). These processes are intended to provide the current risk bearer the ability to enter into a retrospective reinsurance agreement with a qualified carrier. This company will continue to manage the claim liability to at least the same degree of efficiency as before. They also maintain the same focus of ensuring adherence to original policy parameters. In addition to LPTs there are Assumption and Novation agreements as well as Insurance Business Transfer agreements.

SEPTEMBER 24, 2:00pm - See Through the Smoke: Cannabis, Captives, and All Things In-Between
Growth in the cannabis space continues to explode and with it more and more brokers and program managers are inquiring about the ability to participate in the risk of their cannabis enterprise via captive insurance ownership. We'll touch on why commercial carriers are reluctant, which are writing, and what coverages are available. We'll also share a conversation on cannabis related captives have been formed to date, where, and which domiciles seem more inclined as well as what is concerning to the regulators and why most domiciles won't allow. We'll continue with info and an update on the safe banking act as well as the likelihood of passage and potential ramifications to the captive industry.

CCIA Supports Connecticut's Captive Insurance Solution to Crumbling Home Foundations

The state of Connecticut has decided to provide over $100 million to fund a captive insurer, Connecticut Foundation Solutions Indemnity Company, Inc., that will insure the replacement or repair of residential foundations damaged by the chemical pyrrhotite. CCIA former Chairman Michael Maglaras & Company has been working feverishly as the Superintendent to make this captive operational. CFSIC has been licensed as a captive insurer under the Connecticut captive statutes, and is fully formed with a Board of Directors and all service providers in place. The final step remaining in order for CFSIC to launch will be the transfer of needed funding from the Connecticut Department of Housing in order to begin its mission. Please refer to for up to-date information. CCIA supports this innovative use of a captive and how it will come to the aid of affected Connecticut homeowners.
