In 2002, Jim formed JM Niland & Associates, LLC to provide hands on management of single parent captives and offer guidance to business owners investigating the alternative risk transfer marketplace.
Jim successfully established three single parent captives and two risk retention groups, while managing a single parent captive for the second largest heating oil distributor in the New York City area. Acting as their Outsourced Risk Manager, Jim practices all functions of a captive including: selection of the fronting and reinsurance carriers; domicile captive management; actuarial duties; and selection and management of the TPA and defense counsels.
Jim’s specialties explore and develop alternative risk transfer solutions for a range of coverages including Workers’ Compensation, General Liability and Professional Liability. While growing these programs he has developed a network of reinsurance carriers, captive management firms, actuaries and claims management firms.
Using his comprehensive risk management knowledge, Jim acts as an extension of his clients’ teams. He is an active participant in the claims management and loss control teams. His involvement in aggressive claims management and safety programs have significantly reduced the costs of risk transfer for his clients.
