Issue: A big box retailer was looking to sell extended warranties on its products.

Solution: AIG provided a fronted program for the client, leveraging AIG’s global capabilities to manage insurance and transactional issues and reinsure  the exposure to the client’s captive.

Benefit: AIG supported a customized fronted program that creates a new source of revenue for the client, with the client sharing in the underwriting risk on the program through its captive reinsurer.

Why is this important?

Customized and Compliant Solutions.

Captive Management

Issue: A client faced significantly increased retention and premiums at renewal due to poor loss experience and market conditions.

Solution: Client retained the first $250,000 of the risk exposure. AIG issued the policy to the client, with the first $250,000 reinsured to the client’s protected cell within AIG’s sponsored cell captive facility.

Benefit: The client efficiently managed its retention through a protected cell within AIG’s sponsored cell captive facility and provided needed proof of insurance for  the full program.

Why is this important?

Rent or Own Flexibility.

Group Captives

Issue: An insured with favorable loss history and a commitment to providing a safe workplace was facing a significant rate increase in the guaranteed cost market based on its industry.

Solution: The insured joined a group captive insured by  AIG under a program whereby the captive reinsures  the first layer of each loss.

Benefit: Competitive pricing based on the loss experience  of the individual insured and the potential to share  in the underwriting results of the group captive.
