Risk Retention Group Audit, Tax, and Advisory Solutions


Johnson Lambert Knows

Risk Retention Groups

With our familiarity and deep involvement in the captive insurance industry, we have a rich history of working with risk retention groups for decades. Today we provide audit, tax, and advisory services to approximately 21% of the risk retention group sector.

Similar to our captive practice, we foster relationships with captive managers and RRG boards so that we can ensure efficiency, responsiveness, and a true partnership that benefits our RRG clients not only during the annual engagement period and throughout the year.


Services for Risk Retention Groups

We add value to our clients and their captive management companies through efficient engagements, knowledge sharing, best practice advising, and tailored synergistic and communicative approaches.

Audit and Accounting Advisory Services

Risk retention groups are unique entities that deserve an auditor who understands this sector and who will right-size the audit approach for every individual RRG. We leverage our experience from working with a significant number of RRGs, and we always listen to, learn from, and understand each client as we design our audit plans and deliver our audit services.

When accounting standards are updated, when the laws and regulations that affect RRGs change, or when your RRG is undergoing operational changes, a knowledgeable, caring, responsive, and committed advisor can make these challenges and opportunities easier to tackle. We enjoy working collaboratively with our clients to solve any problem, improve any pain point, or optimize any process.

As our RRG audit and advisory teams routinely work with similar organizations, our engagement team leaders are tuned in to industry happenings and hot-topics, and they are constantly educating and sharing pertinent information with both the Johnson Lambert team and our clients.

Audit and Assurance Services

Our tax services for risk retention groups include federal and state income tax preparation, preparation and review of quarterly and annual provisions, uncertain tax position documentation, taxing authority examination representation, tax planning and consulting, and more.
