Minnesota Bankers Association endorses KeyState’s Bank Captive Program


SAINT PAUL, MN. (October 2015) Minnesota’s banks will soon be presented with the benefits of an innovative captive insurance program due to the endorsement of KeyState’s Bank Captive Program by the Minnesota Bankers Association’s Insurance & Services, Inc.


Minnesota banks with over $1 billion in assets will have the opportunity to form their own captive insurance company through KeyState’s Bank Captive Program.  The captive augments a bank’s commercial policies by covering the existing commercial deductible layers, increasing coverage levels on existing policies (excess layers), and identifying other currently unfunded risks to insure where commercial insurance is not available to the bank. The captive insurance company is implemented by Crowe Horwath LLP, a national CPA firm, and then managed on an ongoing basis by KeyState Captive Management.  If properly structured, the captive may also allow the bank to take advantage of a significant small business incentive available under a section of the tax code.


“KeyState’s Bank Captive Program has an excellent reputation and we are proud to endorse it. We are enthusiastic about bringing this innovative program to Minnesota banks,” says Joseph Witt, President and CEO of the MBA.


The KeyState Captive Program has been endorsed by seventeen state banking associations or their for profit subsidiary with several other endorsements in progress.
