captive management services

R&Q Quest's Bermuda management operation has been developed to specifically serve all the needs of the international insurance market. We have brought together a group of professionals to form a team which can support all the day-to-day operations of our clients in the areas of accounting, investment, administration, underwriting and claims. These specialist skills are made available to each of our clients and can be utilized as and when required.
