Captives Explained - What to Know for the Middle East


The continued challenges in the insurance market, coupled with lingering impacts from the pandemic, have driven more organizations in the Middle East to consider the use of a captive for financial flexibility and protection.

The DIFC and Marsh Captive Solutions are pleased to invite you to a webinar to learn more about captive basics, what your peers in the region are already doing with their captives, and what solutions may be available to enhance your risk management programme. 

The session will cover the following:

  • What is a captive?
  • Considerations when setting up a captive.
  • The path to a captive - understanding feasibility, initial setup, and ongoing management.
  • How capital requirements are calculated.
  • Understanding captive regulations in the DIFC.
