5 CPE credits are available for the successful completion of this course.

This course presents the material from the reinsurance portion of the former course, “Protecting the Captive: Predicting Risk, Reinsurance and Other Transfer Mechanisms.”  It will begin with an overview of predicting risk for loss reserving, ratemaking, and financial forecasting. Once the basics of predicting risk have been covered, a direct writing captive may use a number of different program structures to manage its shareholders’ retained risk. Policies can be written for corporate reimbursement, aggregate excess, or primary protection. In each case, the objective is to pool the risks of operations. The financing of retained risk can also be achieved by pooling risks between different captives. In either case, the captive’s operating and claims handling procedures must support the transfer of risk from the insured operating entities to accomplish the shareholders’ financial objectives. Participants in this course will learn how to make sure the captive operates like a real insurance company.

This course will explore how a captive uses reinsurance to protect itself from unexpected high-severity or high-frequency losses and leverages its capital to earn underwriting income without retaining risk. Participants will learn when it makes sense for a captive to buy reinsurance.


In this course, topics covered include:

  • Captive reinsurance
  • Types of reinsurance
  • Regulation of reinsurance
  • Reinsurance agreements
