Captives in the Hard Insurance Marketplace

Captives in the Hard Insurance Marketplace


The insurance marketplace is changing fast. In some areas, it has not been as hard or as distressed as it has been since the mid-80s. Captives have always been a great solution for most middle market staffing companies when it comes to securing long-term protection with cost stabilization. Join TRICOM and Odell Studner in our Industry Insider webinar as we explore all of the advantages and possible disadvantages to captives while also looking at why in a hard insurance marketplace even more staffing companies find themselves with the need to get educated on if a captive is the right insurance solution for them.

By the end of this session, you will obtain a brief overview of the insurance marketplace and know why more staffing companies are turning to captives as a solution.
