Sponsored Segregated Cell Captives
Captives are an alternate risk management strategy that can provide a company with many advantages over traditional insurance coverage. Many types of captives exist, and each structure has its own advantages and disadvantages. One of the more complex captive structures in existence is the sponsored or segregated cell captive.
What is a Segregated Cell Captive?
A segregated cell captive is a special type of captive that separates itself into multiple internal segments, or “cells.” Each cell is protected from any claims made by another cell’s creditors. Segregated cell captives are most commonly used in rent-a-captive arrangements, but they may also be used by the same company in order to segregate subsidiaries or lines of risk.
Benefits of Segregated Cell Captives
The main benefit of a segregated cell captive is the protection each cell within the captive receives from external creditors. This benefit is unique to segregated cell captives and does not apply to other types of captive arrangements. However, if you utilize this arrangement, you will also enjoy all of the other general benefits of captives, including:
- More control over your coverage.
- Opportunities to earn interest on investments.
- Tax benefits.
- Protection from the volatility of the external market.
