February 2020 Edition
Another election year has officially kicked off! If you are like me, you can't wait until November 4th comes and it's all over.

As we start the new year, now is a great time to review your client's business plan. While doing so take a look at how they might benefit from implementing a Captive Insurance company. 

Also, this is the start of the captive conference season. These are great events where you can learn more than you ever want to know about captives. If you can't make any of these conferences, please reach out to me, and I can go over all the new information over a cup of coffee or round of golf!

Keep in mind; we provide education and teaching for CPAs, financial advisors, tax & estate attorneys, business owners, and others about the benefits of captive insurance. If you would like for us to talk to your firm, clients, group, or you know someone who could benefit from implementing a Captive, please give me a call today.

If you have any questions about implementing a Captive, call me directly or visit our  Captive 101 section  on our website.

Claim Information
Description: One of our insureds was sued when an accusation was made that they were not providing adequate home care for a customer.

*Please note that each claim will undergo an independent investigation and thorough review process. Various components specific to the claim at hand will be assessed thoroughly to determine if the loss is covered by the policy.
