Captive Insurance Services

Green Mountain Sponsored Captive Insurance Company (Green Mountain,, Vermont’s largest independent rent-a-captive, is sponsoring a series of webinars on protected cell captives. Southern Insurance Underwriters (SIU) is a shareholder in Green Mountain. We offer this webinar to our retail agents to provide them with education about captive insurance and how it can be beneficial to both them and their policyholders.


This webinar will present how a Protected Cell Captive (PCC) can be used to create a cost effective use of capital, stream line set up and implementation of the captive business plan. Presentations shall include an actual user of a PCC, the benefits of using Vermont as a domicile for the PCC and the step-by step process of organizing a protected or incorporated cell.

The webinar is suitable for anyone interested in establishing a captive program and considering a cell rather than a standalone captive, as well anyone looking to understand the benefits of PCCs.
