The Guernsey captive managers are excited about the new proposals being put to the States of Guernsey to facilitate rent-a-captives. Termed protected cell companies, they allow for a core capital to be subscribed by insurance companies, insurance managers or even the participants themselves. The insurance business of each different insurer can be written into different cells where the assets of one cell are protected by law from the liabilities of the other.
