rental captive

A rental captive is a captive insurance company that allows unrelated parties ("participants") to use the captive for a fee, thereby eliminating the need for formation and operation of a new company.

The participant may or may not be required to contribute capital and may or may not be a preferred shareholder in the rental captive. Provided such use is permitted in a domicile, rental captive participants may be insureds or noninsureds, such as insurance agents.
