Structure

The company is licensed and managed in the Cayman Islands to reinsure risks from the issuing insurance company, Zurich N. A., that is licensed and provides coverage in the United States. The types of coverage written by Raffles are Workers’ Compensation, Automobile and General Liability.

Shareholder Involvement

The company requires that every shareholder also appoint a director. Each shareholder, regardless of premium size, has one vote. A simple majority governs. Raffles’ shareholder responsibilities include controlling losses, participating in board meetings, and educating other high quality companies about the captive concept. Management strength lies in a strong committee structure and individual involvement of all directors during frequent meetings held both in the Cayman Islands and other locations outside the United States. Presently, the committees and their primary responsibilities are:

  1. Underwriting – Advises the Board on desirable risks to be assumed and ensures that the assumed risks are adequately underwritten.

  2. Risk Control – Sets loss control goals for its members. Reviews loss control reports and works with members to meet the required loss control and claims management goals of the company.

  3. Investment – Advises the board on policies for the investment of the company’s assets.
