Captives in Asia-Pacific

Should growing multinationals look to captives to help manage their employee benefits programmes?

The rise of economic powers such as China and India over the past decade, and Japan’s continued role as a leading global economy, has seen Asia, and particularly the Asia-Pacific region, become the world’s most economically powerful market. And this is not expected to change any time soon. As more and more Asian-Pacific companies become true global players and able to attract and fight for the best talent in the market, should multinationals be looking to captives to manage the rising costs of their employee benefits (EB) programmes?
