Season three of the Global Captive Podcast, supported by legacy specialists R&Q, kicks off with Pete Kranz, Captive Practice Leader at Beecher Carlson, joining Richard Cutcher as guest co-host.
Pete discusses the impact of the pandemic and hardening market on existing and new captive business over the past 12 months, as well as providing his views on the impact Washington State's new premium tax on captives may have.
The captive owner interview sees a return for Carl Leeman, Chief Risk Officer of Katoen Natie, who reacts to the news several large European countries are considering introducing a new captive framework, the potential changes to Solvency II and how his own captive has responded to the hard market and pandemic.
Steven Beeghly, a Seattle-based corporate and regulatory insurance attorney, helps us make sense of the developments and new legislation coming out of Washington State.
