Captive Insurance Company
An insurance company owned by the company or companies whose risks it insures. Using a captive company brings cost and tax advantages so they are often used when a company considers itself large enough to insure its own risks. Similarly, a captive financial company is a subsidiary, whose purpose is to provide financing to customers buying the parent company's product.
