New Zealand As A Captive Insurance Domicile

New Zealand has recently enacted new insurance legislation.

There are 9 captive companies already domiciled in NZ, all subsidiary companies to NZ owned corporations.

What is a Captive Insurance Company?

It’s a way of self-insuring instead of paying an insurer to manage your risk. All sorts of  large companies use captive insurance arrangements – they save money, administration  and time. 

Why New Zealand?

NZ is not just a beautiful country! We have a regulated environment for captive 
insurance companies, an established and well operated insurance industry and a number of  international insurance broking firms who can assist you to set up your captive.
