A.M. Best Interviews Nashville Partner Kevin Doherty on the State of Captive Insurance in Tennessee

    August 20, 2012

    On Aug. 9, 2012, Kevin Doherty, partner in the Nashville office of Burr & Forman and President of the Tennessee Captive Insurance Association (TCIA), was interviewed by A.M. Best at the Vermont Captive Insurance Association Annual Conference.

    In the interview, Doherty discusses the overhaul of Tennessee’s captive laws and how the TCIA has helped bring more captive business to the state. Doherty explains that there is a particular interest in Tennessee from companies in the health care industry looking to utilize stop loss or medical malpractice captives. He goes on to say that any captive that is a good business idea will likely be viewed favorably in Tennessee. Tennessee has a chance to be a significant player in the captive industry, according to Doherty, because of the state’s geography and the fact that there are not a lot of other domiciles in the region.
