Corporate ethics has taken on increased prominence at U.S. companies. The Enron scandal — the largest corporate bankruptcy in U.S. history — and the failures of the accounting profession to provide fair warning of the company’s problems, as well as questionable accounting practices reported in a number of large companies, resulted in significant changes to corporate governance. How did these changes impact the captive insurance industry?  What do managers and staff in the industry need to know and practice to demonstrate high ethical standards?

This course focuses on legal and ethical issues related to business practices in the captive insurance industry. Using real world examples, participants will explore situations that arise in captive insurance transactions. 

Key course takeaways:

  • Determine how to make ethical decisions and what makes them ethical
  • Examine corporate governance fixes designed to address ethical issues
  • Explore good business practices for building an ethical culture
  • Compare the roles and responsibilities of various professionals in the captive industry in maintaining ethical standards
  • Analyze ethical issues in a case study with peers and present conclusions
