CWC & GIIA Press Release 3rd July 2107

In recognition of the growing demands on the Association, the Guernsey International Insurance Association (“GIIA”) has retained Cutts-Watson Consulting Limited (“CWC”) to provide strategic and technical support to its Executive Committee and functional sub committees.

Explaining the rationale behind the appointment, Derek Maddison, Chairman of GIIA said “following a strategic review of the ongoing role of the Association, it was clear the previous voluntary service arrangement would be unable to cope with increasing demands, in particular the implementation of the recommendations of the States of Guernsey’s review of the local insurance industry. We therefore took the step to appoint external expertise to support our committees. CWC was the logical choice given its bench strength of experienced captive practitioners, deep industry knowledge and awareness of current local issues.” Graham Powell will act as principal contact at CWC and draw upon the accumulation of knowledge of the CWC team

Malcolm Cutts-Watson, MD of CWC advised “We are delighted to be asked to play such an active role in the future of the Guernsey insurance industry. The opportunities and challenges have never been greater and it is essential the Association makes the right strategic decisions to enable the local industry to continue flourishing.”

GIIA is the representative body for insurers and insurance managers who work in insurance and risk management in Guernsey.
