The most frequent query we hear is "we have a problem and have been told that a captive is the answer — Is it?" As Kirkway spans the Excess, Program and Reinsurance arenas we are ideally suited to provide the best solution for the client, rather than making the client fit the industry solution.

Kirkway helps clients negotiate the complex area where excess and reinsurance covers are needed to protect captive insurance companies. Kirkway has extensive experience in the casualty arena and has been successful in securing quota share, specific excess and aggregate excess covers for traditional captives as well as risk retention groups, funds and other self-insured entities.

While Kirkway's aim is to work with on-going business concerns, we are often asked to help unwind the liabilities of captives that are being run-off or sold. We have had a recent success in this space, facilitating the sale of a captive in run-off to a Bermudian insurance entity.
We are not in the captive management business and therefore we are able to provide un-biased advice on issues relevant to structure, vehicle suitability, domicile selection, management and so forth.
