Captive Insurance


Active Captive Management is pleased to announce our first formation in the State of Hawaii.


Designed and facilitated by Cinda Carbone, this Hawaii domiciled pure captive provides policy lines that cover self insured losses and mitigate commercial gaps in coverage for a large privately owned real estate holding company. Ms. Carbone’s extensive experience with the Hawaii Captive Insurance Regulators facilitated a seamless formation process and resulted in our obtaining a license for the new captive within 60 days.


Hawaii’s captive law was enacted in 1987. With 175 captive as of June, 2012, Hawaii is one of the largest on-shore domiciles. Industry Groups typically represented by the Hawaii Captive Insurance Council are: Construction & Real Estate (57), Health Care (29), Telecommunications & Manufacturing (30), Retail & Other Services (25), Financial Services (16) and Transportation & Energy (18). Hawaii captives have grown to an estimated $14 billion in combined assets and $2.6 billion in premiums according to the latest update from the Deputy Insurance Commissioner.
