The risk retention group insurance alternative under the federal Liability Risk Retention Act (“LRRA”) enjoys a strong advantage over traditional insurance carriers, in that the LRRA allows them to write directly, without multi-state licensing.  

In this course we will explore the risk retention group (RRG) concept, under what circumstances a captive should consider the RRG structure, why it works, and why risk retention groups should not be subject to traditional insurance regulation. We will also examine the ways in which non-domiciliary states are abusing risk retention groups and clearly exceeding their limited empowerment under the LRRA and potential RRG responses to non domiciliary state overreaching. 

Key course takeaways:

  • Identify strengths and limitations of RRGs as an insurance vehicle 
  • Explain RRG formation and operation issues, including the impact of state financial responsibility laws 
  • Examine NAIC standards applicable to RRGs 
  • Discuss significant legal cases related to RRGs
