Welcome to Active Captive Management

Active Captive Management (ACM) specializes in the formation and management of captive insurance companies for the middle market.

 

Since 2005, Active Captive Management has provided alternative risk solutions, formation and management services to a wide range of operating companies. As an independent captive manager, ACM values the strategic alliances and partnerships with our client’s advisors and representatives. As each client is unique, the design of specialized captive risk solutions must be tailored appropriately to those specific risks. Combining over three decades of insurance experience, ACM provides risk transfer solutions in the following industries; Agriculture, Automotive, Construction, Distribution and Warehousing, Engineering, Food and Beverage, Fuel and Oil, Healthcare Services, Manufacturing, Nursing Homes, Real Estate Development and Technology.

 

Captive Insurance Experience Beyond Convention

 

Consider the alternatives to traditional insurance without experiencing a sales driven philosophy to providing transfer, financing and captive management risk options. Consider Active Captive Management.

 

Captive Insurance as an alternative risk management strategy is being used by more than half of the Fortune 1,500 US and multinational corporations.

 

ACM provides smaller or medium size companies a clear definition of a viable captive, assessing our clients risk exposure and financing objectives.

 

ACM provides the expertise to form, manage and operate your captive, enabling ownership to retain focus on primary business entities, while engaging a team of experts in the captive industry to effectively manage the compliance, regulations and financial aspects of the supporting captive.

Active Captive Management was honored to host Christian Venegas for a semester long internship in Laguna Hills, CA.

 

A native of Nicoya, Costa Rica, Christian graduates in June from Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica where he will receive a degree in Business Administration. Christian came to Active Captive through his mentor, Gary Rose, a friend of Active’s CFO, Deanna Gilpin. Deanna graciously offered Christian the opportunity to learn about the captive industry while also immersing himself in U.S. culture. While at ACM, Christian focused his work in the Accounting Department; learning the day to day process of Captive bookkeeping and financial compliance. Christian appreciated his time at Active Captive saying “The U.S is a great country...I have met great people, which is most important…I am very thankful for everyone in the office because they have made me feel welcome. I really have positive feelings for all of them and I will never forget this experience.” While in Costa Rica, Christian enjoys playing soccer, working out, and spending time with his dog and brother.
