Captives & alternative markets
When you own risk, managing it well is your top priority. Milliman helps self-insureds, captive insurers, risk pools with loss and expense liabilities, risk retention alternatives, pricing and funding, financial modeling, and claims management. Our consultants are experts in this specialized field and bring the data and experience required to help you succeed.
We provide independent evaluations of loss and loss adjustment expense liabilities, statements of opinion regarding adequacy of reserves for insurance regulatory and other reporting purposes, and reviews of internal procedures and assumptions.
We assist in evaluating captive carrier feasibility and assistance in evaluating the benefits, costs, and risks of alternative retention limits. We also evaluate commercial insurance proposals and provide information for use in negotiating insurance prices.
We prepare actuarial feasibility studies for internal and regulatory purposes, evaluate funding requirements corresponding to targeted probability levels, evaluate the impact of potential loss variances on funding, and allocate premiums for commercial insurance and/or self-insurance funding among departments.
We do pro forma projections, which include income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow. We provide sensitivity analysis, including various trend and loss scenarios.
We assess and develop loss and loss expense control, audit claim files, and provide independent evaluation of claim service providers. We also analyze case reserves and practices and assess operational design and effectiveness analysis, including various trend and loss scenarios.
Expenses related to the self-insurance of liabilities for professional liability and workers' compensation coverage are highly exposed to increases in the inflation rate.
