Capstone Forms Anguilla Captive Insurance Subsidiary

Anguilla Captive Insurance subsidiaryTo meet the continuing demands of servicing our clients, Capstone recently formed an Anguilla captive insurance subsidiary, CIMA, which is already one of the three largest insurance managers in this British Overseas Territory.

Together with our affiliate, The Feldman Law Firm LLP and its well-recognized staff of tax and corporate lawyers, Capstone and CIMA is the largest fully integrated provider of captive insurance services to the U.S. middle market.

Administering a client's captive insurance company requires a team effort coordinating the many moving parts. Our team consists of tax, corporate, financing and regulatory lawyers, risk managers, underwriters, actuaries, independent CPAs licensed by the domicile of choice, accountants, and risk managers.

Local persons "on the ground" in the state or country of incorporation maintain an ongoing dialogue with the insurer's regulators, while also fulfilling a statutory function as the "insurance manager". Additionally, British jurisdictions usually require a "company manager" which is responsible for maintaining the corporation's good standing and legal presence in the jurisdiction. A captive insurer is a living, breathing insurance company which requires ongoing care and maintenance.

Among the choice of several domiciles, which includes various U.S. jurisdictions, that Capstone offers its clients is the British jurisdiction of Anguilla, which is less than ten miles from Saint Maarten, itself a Dutch / French territory. Anguilla is a British Overseas Territory, overseen by a United Kingdom-appointed Governor General. Anguilla has one of the most technologically advanced corporate registry operations among its British counterparts and has geared its insurance management operation towards closely-held, mid-market companies. Its London-controlled Financial Services Commission independently regulates insurance, banking and mutual funds in the territory.

Capstone formed CIMA (Anguilla office) to directly interface with captives' regulators in various jurisdictions on behalf of its clients. By directly interfacing with the regulators through one integrated team, that being Capstone/CIMA/The Feldman Law Firm LLP, our clients' issues are more quickly and efficiently handled and the quality of the planning, whether U.S. or offshore, is enhanced.
