Choosing the right captive insurance domicile is important to the on-going success of your captive insurance company. A captive is part of a long term risk management solution.  You want a regulator and jurisdiction that will be a partner in your success. Your needs will change and you will want a domicile that has the support to be there for you. What is the track record of the domicile?  What are the resources allocated to support this industry? The bottom line is, if you do your due diligence, you will find out why Vermont is home to more captives than any other domestic domicile.
