As a CPA in public accounting, understanding complex insurance topics helps me to gain a competitive advantage by providing value to my clients beyond the traditional assurance and tax services. The Associate in Captive Insurance (“ACI”) designation course offered by the International Center for Captive Insurance Education (“ICCIE”) provided me with the ground work necessary to understand where captives came from, how they work, and what issues are currently affecting their future direction. All of the courses are taught by professionals with expansive knowledge and experience working in the captive insurance industry. With this knowledge, I can now confidently consult with my clients and guide them in the right direction. Not only does this consulting arrangement provide extreme value to my clients, it also provides a nice financial addition to my current CPA practice.
