A career specialist in alternative management strategies with a diverse background in insurance, Jarid delivers technical insurance solutions to clients in a wide variety of industries including construction, real estate, staffing, manufacturing, trucking, and finance.

Jarid joins me today to discuss captive insurance companies and how they can be a great means to serve business owners. He explains how business owners can utilize the captive insurance methodology and process within their companies. He outlines the benefits of captive insurance, especially toward risk management. Jarid also warns against the abuse of captive insurance, explains the work involved in creating captive insurance companies, and highlights how advisors can open the conversation about captive insurance companies with their clients or prospects.


“Captives are a great wedge for prospecting or keeping new ideas in front of your clients. It comes to fact finding—identifying how big their companies are and how many employees they have.” - Jarid Beck
