As we enter a new year, we thought it would be fun to go back and look over our blogs from 2011. As your business partner, we try to keep up with the most relevant topics, news, and legislative updates that you are dealing with. The following is a list of the top 10 most read posts of the past year!

With companies both large and small struggling to manage the cost of traditional insurance, many businesses are now looking to captives as a possible solution. This post talked a little bit about some captives basics.
