​​For many corporations, the use of a self-insured retention or a captive insurance company is an essential part of their risk management strategy. While these strategies provide insureds with proven benefits, there is still a need for related administration and services.  Fronting services combine fronting with established value underwriting, quality claims management and risk control services to help minimize a corporation's total cost.


Why choose a fronting company: 

  • Admitted Paper:  policy from a locally licensed insurance carrier, often used for local premium payment and funds flow

  • Regulation/Compliance:  compliance with local regulations, requiring local policies

  • Support services:  underwriting/pricing, risk control, claims handling

  • Contractual:  support lending and or other agreements that require proof of local licensed insurance

  • Global capability:  provide local country licensed policies to support multinational programs

The Liberty Mutual Canada Difference:

  • Seamless experience for brokers and insures via a single point of contact involving virtually all lines of business

  • Multiline appetite

  • Flexible limits

  • Access to services in over 100 countries via Liberty Mutual Group offices or its strategic partners

Fronting Solutions:

  • Self Insured Retention (S.I.R.) programs: Companies wishing to retain insurance risk and losses, which are funded via their cash flow.  This reduces risk transfer costs.

  • Captive programs: Companies with offshore insurance companies of their own wishing to retain insurance risk and losses by transfer this risk/losses to their offshore entity.  Assists in reducing risk transfer costs.

  • Global Placements:  Companies looking to place insurance for operations located in other jurisdictions to ensure compliance with regulation and local premium payment and funds flow purposes.
