C2: Using Your Captive to Make a Profit
In this case study, Extra Space Storage’s risk manager will share how the company’s captive insurance company subsidiary has turned a profit by offering tenant insurance to its customers in the self-storage industry. This insurance covers damage to customers’ belongings in the event of a variety of accidental circumstances, including fire, water, and pest damage, as well as burglary. The addition of this third-party business also has enabled the Salt Lake City, Utah-based company to deduct its first-party loss reserves. The Bermuda-based captive was formed in 2006 in response as Extra Space looked to control its growing insurance program.
