A.M. Best to Lead Industry Webinar July 31

A.M. Best Co. analysts will lead an online discussion updating the state of the captive insurance industry and elaborating on highlights of a new A.M. Best special report on that industry on Thursday, July 31 at 10 a.m. EDT. John Andre and Steven Chirico of A.M. Best’s property/casualty rating division will lead the panel.

Registration for the webinar is free, and participants will be able to pose questions and comments.

A captive insurance organization insures some or all of the risks of its parent organization. Captives are a significant part of the growing Alternative Risk Transfer (ART) insurance sector in many nations and U.S. states. Despite softening commercial market conditions, captives remain integral to a comprehensive insurance solution for scores of both single parent and group owners.

While A.M. Best rates many captives throughout the world, the special report that will be the focus of this webinar examines trends in premium volume, loss reserves and admitted assets for A.M. Best-rated, U.S.-based captive organizations. However, questions are welcomed regarding all types of captive rating issues.

The webinar is offered at no cost. Visit to register. Regional phone access is available worldwide.
