SC - Your Captive Home

A Robust & Thriving Captive Marketplace
South Carolina has long been considered one of the top 5 mature domiciles in the Western Hemisphere. Since captive enabling legislation was passed in 2000, we have focused on developing the infrastructure, resources, and staffing to provide our captive owners with a robust and thriving captive marketplace. The result is a well-rounded domicile that can address your captive needs whether they be large or small, simple or complex.

The captive industry continues to grow in South Carolina with over 165 active companies to date. The trend for the future looks very promising.
