Historically, businesses in the Middle East have been relatively slow to embrace captive insurance, but the hard market over the past two years has prompted a shift in culture with setting up captives in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which is why we were so excited to sit down with Richard to discuss just this.

The pair discussed:

  • the interest we’re seeing from the Middle East based multinationals wanting to include employee benefits in their captive
  • the sectors we expect to see implement EB captives in the future
  • the challenges that are currently holding back further adoption of EB captives in the region.
