Cayman’s captive insurance marketplace remains strong

The captive insurance market on the Cayman Islands, and in general, continued to perform well in 2019. Two factors drove success: the overall attractiveness of captives as an alternative way for organisations to finance their risk, and the expansion of coverage into new lines of insurance by existing captives. Milliman consultant Mike Meehan offers more perspective in a recent interview with Captive Review.

Milliman once again recognized by Captive Review as Actuarial Firm of the Year

For the fourth time in the last six years, including in 2018, Milliman was named actuarial firm of the year at the 2019 U.S. Captive Review Awards, held recently in Burlington, Vt. These awards recognize and reward providers of captive insurance products and services, who have outperformed their competitors and demonstrated the highest levels of excellence over the past 12 months.

“I was honored to once again be able to accept this award on behalf of Milliman. I am fortunate to work with an amazing team of consultants and thought leaders that continue to provide exceptional service to the captive industry,” said consultant Mike Meehan, who has been named to the Captive Review Power 50 list in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

Milliman professionals recognized as captive industry influencers

Milliman’s Joel Chansky was inducted into the Captive Review Hall of Fame, which celebrates the most influential professionals in the captive insurance industry over the past 50 years. Joel has assisted with the formation and the ongoing actuarial needs of many captive insurers. He also reviews captive and risk retention group applications for several state insurance departments.

“This is truly a great honor. When I heard about this, I felt a number of things. First, a bit old, especially when there is a reference to the past 50 years. But second, and more importantly, both humbled and fortunate. A big thank you to the great team around me at Milliman that’s allowed me to do the things it takes to get this recognition, and a bigger thank you to my wife and kids who have always supported me throughout my career,” Joel said.

It was also a three-peat for Milliman consultant Mike Meehan, who was named to the Captive Review Power 50 list for the third consecutive year. Mike climbed up the list five spots, appearing at #34 this year. “I am honored to be included on Captive Review’s Power 50 again this year. It is truly a privilege to be included among the names of so many in the captive industry for whom I have the utmost respect, several of which I am fortunate to call my friends,” he said.

The Captive Review Power 50 recognizes the most influential captive insurance professionals around the world. Individuals are nominated and voted for by peers who identify them as the biggest “movers and shakers” in the captive insurance industry over the past 12 months and who will continue to influence the industry’s direction and progress in the future.
