Asia’s Premier International Financial Hub
Principles of Self-Insurance, Emerging Trends & Opportunities for Asian Captives, Tokyo

Although the concept of self-insurance vehicles such as captives is relatively new in Asia, the industry has been long-established with over 6,600 captive insurance companies worldwide. With only a small proportion of these captives – approximately 200 companies – domiciled in Asia Pacific, many Asian businesses still stand to gain from learning about the benefits of self-insurance.

Effectively, the process of forming a self-insurance vehicle such as a captive will allow a deeper understanding of your corporation and its risk profile as it facilitates the identification of key business risks.

Come and join us to learn how captives can be specifically tailored to your business, transforming your insurance from a business cost to a risk management initiative; as well as domiciling captives in Labuan International Business and Financial Centre.
