Market Insights: Captive Domiciles 2012


Market Insights: Captive Domiciles 2012 provides insight and detailed information on the regulations, taxes and market health in jurisdictions worldwide that serve as domiciles for captive insurers. This new report is for captive buyers and captive service providers alike, and tracks not only the proliferation of captive domiciles in the past year, but also which ones are seeing the biggest gains in new captives and what factors are spurring growth.

In addition to the analysis of the domiciles, this report also includes Business Insurance's exclusive annual ranking of captive domiciles, based on number of captives as of year-end 2011. The ranking is of domiciles with specific captive legislation or regulations and that are seeking to add captives; domiciles that merely allow captive formation under existing insurance legislation or are not currently seeking to attract captives are not included.

The report also includes the full 2012 directory of captive domiciles, which provides detailed information on 61 domiciles worldwide with more than 5,800 captives. Listings include: Contact information on the domicile's regulator; numbers of licensed captives at year-end 2011 and 2010; minimum capital and surplus for captives and premium-to-surplus requirements for each domicile; application fees and annual license fees pertaining to captive insurers. Also listed are the applicable local taxes as well as the name of the law that governs captives in the domicile and the year it was passed. Each listing concludes with contact details for those seeking additional information about each domicile.
