Tweetable Quotes:

  • “Our primary specialty is single parent captives or pure captives, which is a captive that is really set up to write the insurance or serve the interests of one company or their family of companies.” – Jarid Beck
  • “The whole point of captive is to optimize premium spend, but it’s also to develop partnerships. Everybody’s interests are aligned, right? Everybody wants the losses low, the underwriting profits high, and it becomes less about price and more about quality. That’s what we strive for with a lot of our clients” – Jarid Beck
