While regulation may never be easy, this course provides students with straight talk, engaging exercises, and easy to digest resources on the multifaceted subject of captive regulation. This course provides technical and practical insights to enable the student to develop a basic understanding of the regulation process as it relates to captive insurance companies. The material is presented through the examination of the lifecycle of a captive. This investigation looks at issues relevant at every stage of the captive – from cradle to grave. The course provides students opportunities to discuss communication, procedures, challenges, and solutions for regulating captive companies. Students are given the opportunity to gain insight into captive regulation through hands-on activities, collaboration with peers, and a high level of access to the instructors though interactive synchronous class sessions and pre-recorded lectures.

Key course takeaways:

  • Explain the fundamentals of insurance regulation, and demonstrate how it applies to a captive insurance company.
  • Apply this understanding to the successful development and implementation of a captive program starting with the licensing stage advancing through plan changes and examinations.
  • Distinguish between information that is useful, and information that regulators need to effectively and efficiently perform their work.
  • Utilize this knowledge to foster a good working relationship with regulators; anticipate information needs; and avoid miscommunication, confusion, delays, and poor outcomes.
