Montana Bankers Association endorses KeyState’s Bank Captive Program


HELENA, MT. (June 2016) The Montana Bankers Association’s Insurance and Services, Inc. has endorsed KeyState’s Bank Captive Program.  Montana Bankers is one of twenty-three state banking associations to endorse this program.   The program is the largest and fastest growing bank captive program in the country.  


Montana 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.


“We are excited to bring this program to Montana banks.  We have one bank currently participating and look forward to more joining the program,” said Steve Turkiewicz, President/CEO. 


KeyState’s program was established in December 2012 and has been implemented by over 50 banks in 15 states and 9 fed districts.
