Interesting idea, tour of business model

The numbers aren't here for me to tell who this is feasible for. Surely there are abundant reasons why most folks would decide not to "cut out the middle-man" in order to plunge into the insurance business themselves. There are complexities. It sounds simple at first, but keep listening. For example, one's captive entity typically winds up pooling with (writing insurance for) others. And entities are typically offshore. I can see a lot of potential risks,although this author does a yeoman's job (for such a limited format) to explain a lot of aspects. All that said, it is a fascinating idea. Just going "the last mile" to see all the variables in one's particular case (well) would be costly, I would think. There are steps for getting a workup described here. It would be a fancy piece of spreadsheet work to capture all of a business's particular variables. But some pretty bright people sharpened their pencils and got creative to cook this up. And this is well-presented.
This is, it appears, something of a marketing vehicle for the author, who says he sells many of these services. There is nothing wrong with that, per se, as long as the info is valuable and sufficient caveats and non-misleading contents are there. This is not my field, but the author seems to have taken some pains to insert in general many of the usual warnings and disclaimers. Such things should always be listened to carefully. They are not simply "fine print."

I think I can intuit who the target audience is here, and what (hint: offshore) jurisdictions to host the captive would be recommended.

A substantial part of the book goes off into asset protection trusts, and surprise, these are basically offshore too. Are you comfortable with Belize, or maybe Cook Islands, as a host for a trust entity that holds various of your assets? And this, perhaps, in some instances as the legal owner of an onshore entity of yours? Very interesting ideas are here, alright, and here is a bit of a primer on these offshore vehicles. It is also interesting to hear what states onshore can and will provide at least some forms of these entities.
