In the past three years, Marsh clients formed nearly 400 new captive entities – 100 in 2020, 132 in 2021 and 138 in 2022. Globally, Marsh Captive Solutions now manages approximately 1,900 captives and other entities across 55 domiciles — that equates to one in every four captives.

Across all regions, captive insurance premium growth over the past two years continued to trend upward. Premium volume of Marsh-managed captives has topped US$70 billion, with surplus of almost US$120 billion. In particular, captives with Asia-based parents wrote 58% more premium.

Historically, captive growth has occurred during periods of rising commercial insurance pricing as buyers retain more risk. However, even as rate increases began to slow for certain lines of business and regions, captives continued to grow — a trend Marsh foresees continuing.
