M.E. Wilson is a market leader in establishing Captive Insurance programs. We can combine our in-house Loss Control/Safety professionals with our Claims Management experts to deliver a tailored program that we oversee and you control. Owning a business has its advantages. When it comes to insurance, being an owner means control over one of your major costs when you utilize the Captive Model.

Many of the best-in -class companies are leaving the traditional market because they get lumped in with all operators, good and bad, and end up paying more than they should. The captive model allows you to control your company’s insurance destiny and your company can experience significant savings that will give you additional incentive to improve on your company’s Risk Management strategies. Captive ownership allows you to determine your premium budget, loss control program, and re-insurance protection in advance so that the ultimate cost of your risk is determined by your own claims performance.
