DALLAS, Oct. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Comerica Bank has been recognized by Captive Review Magazine with a 2014 U.S. Captive Services Award in the category of "Collateral Service Provider." The 2014 U.S. Captive Services Awards "recognize and reward those providers of captive insurance products and services who have outperformed their competitors and demonstrated the highest levels of excellence over the past 12 months," according to the publication.
"We have been fortunate to win other industry awards in the past, so this award is another confirmation of the excellent customer service our colleagues at Comerica Bank have been providing to captive insurance companies for many years," said Martin Ellis, senior vice president and manager of Comerica's Captive Insurance Banking Services.
The award for being the #1 collateral service provider is especially meaningful, according to Ellis.
"We provide both of the main collateral types for captives, which are letters of credit and reinsurance trusts," said Ellis. "While some of our competitors only provide one option, we provide a full range of banking services and will put clients into the collateral option which is best for them."
Ellis credits the team-based approach at Comerica for the continued recognition.
"We have a dedicated captive insurance team and our captive banking specialists stay up to date on the latest industry developments," said Ellis. "Our relationship managers regularly call on clients with our product partners from other areas of the bank, consistent with our trusted advisor role. We have upgraded our systems and streamlined our documents over the years and are constantly looking for ways to improve customer service."
Comerica's Captive Insurance Banking Services group provides specialized banking services for captive insurance companies, including letters of credit, reinsurance trusts, trust custody, asset and treasury management services. To learn more, visit http://www.comerica.com/captive.
