If the primary purpose of the captive is to buy life insurance, or act as the conduit for the pre-tax purchase for life insurance, or if life insurance becomes the significant asset of the captive, there is a risk that the arrangement will not be considered a bona fide captive arrangement but will instead be treated as a tax shelter.
A captive is an insurance company, and should be treated as such, not a vehicle for investing.
