At Launchways, we’re constantly looking for new innovative, effective ways to help businesses meet their HR, employee benefits, and business insurance needs. This month, we’re proud to announce we are adding Group Insurance Captive solutions to our ever-expanding portfolio of solutions for growing businesses.

In this post we’ll:

  • Define Group Insurance Captives in a straightforward and useful way
  • Explain the value proposition of our group captive membership
  • Describe why we’re so excited to be offering this new program
  • Provide next steps for businesses hoping to learn more about our group insurance captive

What is a Group Insurance Captive?

A “captive” insurance company is an organization founded with the sole purpose of providing business insurance to its owner(s).

Essentially, a captive is the purest form of self-insurance. A business or group of businesses forms a captive in order to meet their insurance needs without being beholden to the packages, limitations, and pricey markups of the traditional marketplace.

A group insurance captive specifically involves a group or “pool” of businesses with similar scales or goals coming together to create and share a captive insurance company. That new company, managed by a designated third party, obtains insurance for each owner/member organization, processes their claims, and maintains the overall health of the pool.

How Do Businesses Benefit from Joining Our Group Insurance Captive?

So, now that you know what a group insurance captive is, the natural question is: Why would you want to be part of one?

Organizations that form or participate in a group captive have greater independence, greater power for self-determination, and greater potential for profit. Let’s take a look at some of the specific ways those gains play out:

  • In the traditional marketplace, you rent your insurance. With a captive you own it.
    • Total continuity of services as desired
    • No stress over price-gouging at policy renewal
  • In the traditional marketplace, business insurance is an expense; in a captive, it’s an opportunity for return.
    • Get up to 60% average return on premium
    • Use safety initiatives/risk management skills to maximize your payout
  • With your own insurance company, you can get exactly the coverage you need and eliminate overspend.
    • No more bundled services you don’t want or need
    • Turn self-knowledge into efficiency-of-scale
  • Owning your insurance company means you call the shots!
    • Work with your pool partners to set the tone for the captive
    • No more getting sold out or let down by the insurance company
  • With a captive, you have greater access to insurance data than ever before.
    • Understand your needs, claims, and expenses better than ever
    • Gain insights to help streamline coverage/claims processing in the future

How to Know if You’re a Good Fit for Our Group Insurance Captive:

Once you hear about the potential benefits of group insurance captives, it’s natural to wonder if your organization is a fit to join.

  • Do you pay $150,000 or more in insurance premiums each year?
  • Does your company have an entrepreneurial spirit?

  • Does your company understand the concept of “risk for reward?
  • Is your company committed to safety?

Why Join a Launchways Group Insurance Captive in 2020?

Now that you’ve got a general understanding of what group insurance captives are and what kind of value they offer businesses, it’s time for us to answer another important question: Why us?

Since our inception, Launchways has focused on providing support and solutions that help growing businesses thrive in the immediate future while also planning for long-term success.

We’re entering the world of Group Insurance Captives because we understand that business insurance needs are increasingly diverse, and more and more organizations are feeling frustrated by the limitations of the traditional marketplace. We want to help our clients bet on themselves, forge powerful partnerships with likeminded businesses, and get the exact coverage they need to thrive.

We believe in the power of growing organizations to improve the business space and lead the next wave of American innovation. That’s why we’re helping businesses find potential pool partners, organizing our group insurance captive, and connecting organizations with the management and expertise they require to ensure their captive experience is successful.


Here at Launchways, we’re excited to be helping our clients gain the power and freedom group insurance captive membership can bring. We’re looking forward to applying our innovative approach and emphasis on specific customer goals to help businesses gain the power, efficiency, and profit potential our group captive offers.


  • Group insurance captives offer businesses true ownership over their insurance, enabling:
    • New profits from return on premiums
    • Increased control over claims management
    • Innovative partnerships with pool peers
  • To be a strong group captive candidate, a business should pay at least $150,000 in annual insurance premiums and be a stable but innovative organization
