Unprecedented disruption, a hardening (re)insurance market, and the onset of new major risks have increased interest in captive use by corporate risk managers. The captive market – once seen as an alternative to traditional commercial insurance – is establishing itself as a valuable risk management tool and a market in its own right.

Richard is joined by Paul Phillips, Partner and Global Captive Network Co-Leader at EY, and Lisa Wall, Executive Vice President and Risk Finance Practice Leader at Lockton, to debate whether the power of captives remains undervalued and if they should no longer be considered the ‘alternative market’ as they become more mainstream.
