No Comments

first_imgFor the 6th year Vermont surpassed the 40 new captives licensed mark with 41 new captive insurance companies in 2011 bringing the total number of licenses to 952, according to data released by the Vermont Banking, Insurance, Securities and Health Care Administration (BISHCA).Thirty were single parent captives, with six risk retention groups (RRG), three sponsored, one industrial insured, and one association. 2011’s new captive insurance licensees brings Vermont overall total to 952 with 590 active captive insurance companies.‘One of the most exciting aspects of 2011 and a perennial key to our success is the high quality of companies that we are privileged to work with,’ said David Provost, Vermont’s Deputy Commissioner of Captive Insurance.  ‘We’re also seeing the State’s continued investment in staff helping us continue to provide outstanding customer service.  That’s very much a part of what keeps Vermont the Gold Standard.’Despite the soft market each quarter of 201l had steady growth.  ‘This strong year is testimony to our continued commitment to maintain Vermont’s reputation as the Gold Standard of domiciles,’ said Governor Peter Shumlin.  ‘While other states continue to falter, Vermont’s stability and support has never wavered. We will continue to address the needs of the industry going forward and will not rest on our laurels.’The top industries licensing captives in the past year in Vermont were insurance, hospitals and medical groups and manufacturing.  Vermont was also busy with activity in risk retention groups which continue to be a growth sector.‘Vermont is the leader in RRG’s and that trend has been a constant. Another area of growth has been in redomestications of existing captives from other states and jurisdictions.  We continue to hear that Vermont provides the greatest value for your captive insurance company,’ said Daniel Towle, Director of Financial Services.  As 2012 begins, two new captives have been licensed and there are already four applications pending according to Towle.  ‘The overall market may be soft, but it is also very dynamic and we expect good things to come from 2012.’Captive insurance is a regulated form of self insurance that has been around since the 1960’s, and has been a part of the Vermont insurance industry since 1981, when Vermont passed the Special Insurer Act.  Captive insurance companies are formed by companies or groups of companies as a form of alternative insurance to better manage their own risk.  Captives are typically used for corporate lines of insurance such as property, general liability, products liability, or professional liability.   Growth sectors of the captive insurance industry include securitization, professional medical malpractice coverage for doctors and hospitals, and the continued trend of small and mid-sized companies forming captive insurance companies.Montpelier, VT ‘ January 10, 2012 ‘ www.vermontcaptive.com(link is external)last_img read more

Diversity Insight: Do you have CU Pride?

No Comments

first_imgTwo years ago, I posted a Facebook photo of my pride Apple watch face with my rainbow pride band. I captioned it, “My watch has a little too much pride. Or is there such a thing?” Lots of friends responded with positive affirmations and messages like “You can never have too much pride.”But one friend, not in the LGBTQ community, quoted St. Augustine instead. “It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that changes men into angels.” I was stunned. I thought, “Is he trying to be funny? Does he not understand the deeper meaning when we say Pride?”I began reflecting on the word “pride” and what it means to our community. Over the last 30 years, I have marched in dozens of parades and attended many events. I can remember the newness and excitement of stepping outside of my hidden self to reveal my authentic self to friends and community members. Over those years, did the meaning and celebration of pride slip away or diminish somehow?

Opeele Boateng blasts ‘coward’ Avram Grant who won’t take risks

No Comments

first_imgFormer Black Starlets coach, Isaac Opeele Boateng has described the head coach of the Black Stars, Avram Grant, as a ‘safety’ coach and not a risk taker.According to the former Asante Kotoko Coach, the Israeli tactician hasn’t been the best in terms of player selection for matches.Grant called up a number of new players for Ghana’s friendly matches against Senegal and Mali, but many of them were unused substitutes.Ebenezer Assifuah, Seidu Salifu and Jeffery Schlupp were all not part of the AFCON 2015 squad, but were included in the list for the friendly matches in France. Assifuah and Salifu were unused substitutes in both matches.Coach Opeele believes Avram Grant should have emulated the style of his predecessor and used the opportunity of the friendlies to try the two. “I can tell you Avram Grant is not a risk taker, he is a safety coach. How can you play friendly matches without testing your newly called players? “We are tired of the old faces. Bring on the new boys to exhibit what they have,” he charged, speaking on Asempa FM’s Ultimate Sports Morning Show.“[Former] coach Kwesi Appiah brought a lot of new players when he was the head coach of Black Stars and these players are still performing incredibly for the nation. Why is Avram Grant not doing same?”Christian Atsu, one of Kwesi Appiah’s products, won the overall best player in the 2015 AFCON in Equatorial Guinea, and a lot of Ghanaians are praising the ‘Silent Killer’ – as Appiah was called by his players – for the opportunity he also gave others like Albert Adomah, David Accam and Jeffery Schlupp from which the Black Stars is benefiting now.Grant led the Black Stars to second place in the 2015 AFCON tournament, but the former Chelsea trainer believes his charges can achieve more. –last_img read more
