Reinsurance Companies

Malta has welcomed some of the most respected names in the industry with its reputation gaining momentum as an ideal jurisdiction for risk and reinsurance solutions. With more companies seeking an EU base to serve their clients, Malta is becoming a destination of choice.

Spreading risk is at the core of insurance business and for insurance companies this involves also spreading their own risk. Reinsurance is about transferring the risks of insurance companies to third-party organisations, making it effectively ‘insurance for insurers’. Companies in Malta can either be authorised to carry out insurance and reinsurance activities or only insurance or reinsurance.
