Captives & Captive Management For Practitioners & Owners
Author: John Parkinson
Publication date: 15/09/2002
Topics Covered :
The first edition of a totally new book on captive insurance companies is written very much from the practical viewpoint. The author spent over 20 years involved in the management of captives, overseeing the dramatic development in this business since 1975.
Originally intended as a study course for those working in the business, including lawyers and accountants, where the end result will be a diploma in Captive Management awarded by Glasgow Caledonian University, this book will be of considerable interest to all those interested or involved in captives.
Indeed the book is a complete A to Z of the subject. It is written in a very readable form and should be of interest to anyone who wants to know more about the intricaces of the subject and wants a reference book handy. The aim has been to produce something relating to the practice and principles of captive management, aspects standing the test of time and requiring the minimum of updates. The book is aimed at captives world-wide and it is intended to make the study course and examination available in all captive domiciles.
