Practice Groups

Our practice groups have been created to co-ordinate the delivery of services across the firm within a particular sector. The groups cut across domiciles, services and offices to provide consistency of service and facilitate sharing of information about that sector. Our research and development efforts are focused on our practice groups with new service approaches and captive programs being developed specifically for these sectors.

We currently have three firm-wide practice groups.

Employee Benefits

SRS was the consultant and captive manager for the first ERISA benefits program approved by the Department of Labor for insurance in a captive. Since then we have continued to be active in the use of captives for employee benefits. We work with both single parent captives requiring exemption under ERISA and group and agency captives, particularly for health insurance. Read More »

Over one-third of our captive clients are owned by organizations in the healthcare industry. We work with healthcare captives in all of our offices and with many different types of captive and ownership structures. Our practice group works to ensure consistency of service. The sharing of information within the practice group allows our healthcare clients to benefit from the collective experience of the firm in this industry.

Risk Retention Groups

Risk Retention Groups (RRGs) are a unique form of captive. In addition to local domicile regulation, RRGs must comply with federal regulation and the filing requirements of non-domiciliary states. Our RRG practice group has developed servicing tools and processes specifically for RRGs as well as creating new applications for RRG use. Read More »
