What is Self-Insurance?

There are many forms of self-insurance but all have a consistent quality, self-insurance involves a formal decision to retain risk rather than pass it to insurers. Whilst the end objective is to save premium and to enhance a company's financial performance, self-insurance differs from standard insurance programs in that it involves the company adopting many of the functions of an insurance company.

Self-insurance requires a company to have a much greater awareness and incentive to improve its claims experience with the aim of passing the savings back to the company as well as making the workplace safer and more productive. selfinsurancemarket.com provides information for companies that are seeking to set up self-insurance vehicles such as self-insured funds and trusts as well as for larger companies and groups that wish to form their own insurance companies, either as captives, mutuals or risk retention groups.

Who Should Use This Site?

selfinsurancemarket.com provides an introduction to the most popular forms of self-insurance providing information for companies that wish to self-insure for the first time or for people wishing to understand the concept of self-insurance. Whilst self-insurance is a seemingly complex world, there are many service providers that are able to advise self-insurers using approaches that have already been adopted by many companies.

Each of our guides is intended to provide information about initiating a self-insurance program. The site allows you to either submit a business enquiry or search for providers and then make contact with them.

selfinsurancemarket.com is also designed to be a useful tool to service providers themselves who require interaction with other service providers in order to put a self-insured program together.
