September 2020 Edition
While some states are still navigating opening their economies, the kids are going back to school, and hopefully, we are getting some normality back in our lives.

If you have any questions about the information in these articles, call me directly. If you have questions about implementing a Captive, also, contact me or visit our Captive 101 section on our website.

We appreciate your business!

Captive Claim Highlight
Client Profile
Industry: Manufacturing
Specialty: Manufacturing & distribution of wire and cable
Location: California
Claim Information
Description: Our Insured had an existing contract with a supplier to provide product for resale. The product was found to be defective. The Insured had to cover the cost of returning and replacing the defective products. Through their Captive's Actual Net Loss policy, Contractual Liability coverage, they were able to recoup their expenses associated with this event.
Line of Coverage: Contractual Liability
This exposure was elected for coverage by the client under their captive policy. This resulted in a claim payment amount of approximately $140,000.
*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.
