AE’s specialist team of lawyers are fully equipped to advise on a range of insurance-related issues.
Insurance Law in Malta
Most of the legislation surrounding insurance in Malta is set out in the Insurance Business Act, 1998 and the Insurance Intermediaries Act 2006, and regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA). The Island’s EU membership means that once a company has established itself and obtained a licence in Malta, it can also operate in any other EU jurisdiction without the need for a local license. Since becoming an EU Member State, Insurance Law in Malta has been updated, making it even more accommodating to the business market. This is particularly true of the captive insurance market, or ‘affiliated insurance’ as it is known in Malta. The more recent introduction of Protected Cell Company (PCC) legislation, makes entry to the captive insurance market far more accessible for companies that previously may have found it uneconomical
