Investment Management

Investment management for Captives requires a specific set of skills and experience. The management team at Argentum have extensive experience developing and managing Captive Insurance portfolios.

Argentum ensures that portfolios are managed to satisfy the need to meet claims payments and to generate profits for the Captive.

Most captive insurance companies follow a predictable evolution in their investment strategy and implementation over time.

Early Stage:
Newly formed Captives rely on initial capital and the first year's premium payment from their parent company and maintain a greater degree of liquidity e.g. 100% short term fixed income instruments. In early years premium payments accumulate and surpluses are created net of claims.

Mid Stage:
Have typically benefited from risk management mitigation strategies of the parent company resulting in few claims. Portfolio asset allocation set by the Captive investment committee tends to have a fixed income orientation with a high degree of liquidity and longer maturities.

Mature Stage:
Eventually, Captives begin to accumulate larger surpluses which may become significant, depending in its claim history.

As premiums accumulate over the years and surpluses exist within the Captive, the Captive investment committee may elect to invest in instruments which over time will generate greater returns than purely fixed income investments. Depending on Captive's risk profile, equities and alternative investments are introduced into the portfolio to enhance returns.
