Dr Matthew Bianchi, the Partner heading GANADO Advocates’ Insurance practice and a member of FinanceMalta’s Board of Governors, delivered the opening remarks and introduced the regulatory framework for insurers at FinanceMalta’s insurance event in London on 19th October, entitled ‘Malta: A Leading EU Insurance Jurisdiction’.

The event saw the participation of a number of Maltese insurance professionals – coming from thriving insurance subsidiaries, captives and cells – who provided greater insight into Malta’s insurance industry and why it is considered as today’s domicile of choice and a cost-effective hub for insurance structures.

The discussion revolved around the Maltese insurance cell structures’ increased efficiency under Solvency II environment, why various companies (including intermediaries, reinsurers and other service companies) have chosen to set up in Malta as opposed to other jurisdictions, and Malta’s recent achievements in the Insurance-Linked Securitisation business.
