Key Highlights
• A unique feature of the Maltese insurance industry is its emergence as a captive insurance and reinsurance domicile. As of 2014, 45 companies were licensed to conduct non-life insurance in the country.

• The non-life segment accounted for 63.8% of the industry’s gross written premium in 2014. Property insurance was the largest category, and accounted for 65.3% of the non-life gross written premium in 2014.

• Motor third-party liability insurance is mandatory. Insurers are rapidly adapting usage-based telematics motor insurance. Motor insurance products for different vehicles such as private, commercial, electric and hybrid, classic and vintage cars are available in Malta.

• Malta’s economy is dominated by banks, financial services and the online gaming industry, and largely depends on technology and telecommunications. Cyber-risk is the second-largest risk to service sector businesses, and the demand for cyber-liability insurance in Malta is expected to rise over the forecast period.

• The sale of general insurance has traditionally been conducted through direct channels in Malta and the continuation of this trend is reflected in the dominance it exhibits as the leading distribution channel.

• Insurance companies domiciled outside Malta can be redomiciled in the form of a captive. Malta houses numerous licensed insurance management companies, which can advise on the formation and day-to-day operation of a PCC or ICC or captive company, to companies new to the captive insurance market.
