Why Own When You Can Rent?

Dec 13, 2017

Why own when you can rent? If I had a dollar for every time I heard that catchy expression, I’d have at least fifty bucks by now! Or, I often hear the following: what about rent-a-captive is a good first step to owning your own captive? And I get confused when people talk about rent-a-captive and segregated cell companies in the same breath; is it the same thing?

Seasoned practitioners in the captive world tend to throw around jargon like it is going out of fashion and I find that the rent-a-captive arena has more than its fair share. The purpose of this brief article is to demystify some of this jargon and discuss some good reasons for renting instead of owning.
