Affiliate Risk Captive

On July 1, 2016, Public Risk Innovation, Solutions, and Management (PRISM) launched a captive insurance company, Affiliate Risk Captive (ARC).  ARC is a pure captive, meaning it is 100% owned by PRISM and only takes on the risk of its parent organization.  The Captive insures coverage program specific corridor risks; conceptually, a 100% transfer of risk at certain layers, much as the coverage program would cede this risk to a reinsurer.  The transfer of risk offers short term gains to the ceding program, and long term gains to PRISM and its members as a whole. 

Mission Statement

ARC acts only in the best interest and for the benefit of PRISM and/or its members.  ARC does they by:
1. Accepting PRISM's transfer of risk from various coverage programs;
2. Providing PRISM access to an enhanced investment program; and
3. Continuing to enhance ARC's risk transfer mechanism when multiple programs' risk are comingled.

Goals

ARC has been established to provide both short and long term objectives for PRISM including: 

  1. A complete risk transfer of corridor risk from various coverage programs to the Captive
  2. An enhanced investment program governed by its own board and investment policies with the goal of additional investment income
  3. A superior risk transfer mechanism when multiple programs’ risk are comingled

Additionally, in 2022 at their strategic planning meeting, the group arrived at creating the following four one-year goals:

  1. Continue national expanstion - create a plan focused on type of entity, type of coverage programs and layers of coverage, and consider reinsurance vs excess insurance
  2. Explore ways for ARC to create more capacity for self-insurance or re-insurance
  3. Explore the feasibility of allowing public entities to participate in ARC's Investment Program
  4. Explore hiring staff and locating staff out of state at ARC

Governance

ARC is governed by a Board of Directors.  The Board is made up of current PRISM Board, Committee, and staff members along with PRISM General Counsel and Utah Counsel, and they are:

Gina Dean

President

Scott Schimke

Documents

Like its parent company, ARC strives to operate in a manner that is transparent.  Although captive insurance companies are not subject to regulations such as the Brown Act, it is important to the members of PRISM to have full knowledge of the activities of ARC, and as such, PRISM staff will provide full disclosure to its members and the public.
