About the Utah Captive Insurance Division

The focus of the Utah Captive Insurance Division is to implement the Utah Captive Insurance Companies Act and promote Utah as a domicile for captive insurance companies. We believe that a multitude of businesses can take greater control of their own insurance risks through a properly organized captive insurance company here in Utah. Our captive infrastructure is rapidly developing and a Utah captive is a great solution for meeting risk management needs.
