OBL BankServices endorses KeyState’s Bank Captive Program


COLUMBUS, Ohio (November 2014) OBL BankServices, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Ohio Bankers League (OBL) has endorsed KeyState’s Bank Captive Program and named KeyState Captive Management as an endorsed business partner.

Ohio banks with over $1 billion in assets will have the opportunity to form their own captive insurance company to cover risks that are not currently commercially insured and enhance the enterprise risk profile of their bank through KeyState’s Bank Captive Program.  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.

“The program is already a proven success.” explained Michelle Crume, OBL BankServices executive director & OBL senior vice president. “We have three Ohio banks currently participating in the program and we are excited to bring the program to all eligible Ohio banks.”

“The benefits are so compelling which is why the OBL BankServices’ board of directors voted unanimously to endorse KeyState’s Bank Captive Program and make it available to OBL members,” added Crume.

OBL BankServices is the eighth state banking association or subsidiary to endorse the captive program with several other state banking endorsements in progress.   “We are thrilled to expand the existing program throughout Ohio and look forward to offering this program to even more Ohio banks in 2015” added KeyState CEO Josh Miller.
 
*Potential savings is an after-expense estimate and will differ based on premiums paid to and claims paid by the captive in a given year.
