Imagine the possibilities...
Many captives are overcapitalized since the risk administrator or the CFO would rather capitalize too much than not enough. We do not encourage this because excess surplus creates low returns on invested capital (ROIC). A low ROIC possibly drains financial yield from its parent corporation.
A company's use of capital (captives) regulates whether it makes a financial profit or realizes a cost. This is termed capital supervision. An economic return is defined as that amount of investment return in excess of the company's cost of capital.
Simply, a company's ROIC should not be lower than the cost of that capital. Investments include everything the company invests in or acquires, not just monetary market investments. Captives usually do not invest in anything more interesting than the equities market, so their ROICs might be lower than that earned by their parent companies. This is acceptable unless its ROIC is lower than its parent's cost of capital.
Captives are not industry specific...
Whether you are a Medical Doctor, a Business person or a Lawyer - and, provided your company meets the threshold for net income, and provided our actuarial consultant agrees, you can engage with us to begin the process of formation and management.
If you are a CPA and have clients that you think may benefit from this alternative to the main stream risk management, then, please call us and we will be more than happy to explain the process to you in more detail.
