Captive Insurance News Wall - Keeping you Informed
Cutts-Watson Consulting Limited
The aim of this short piece is to synthesize the OECD Report on Malta issued recently in 2020 which resulted in a downgrade for the country from ‘largely compliant’ to ‘partially compliant’ on matters of transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes.
Cutts-Watson Consulting Limited (CWC) announces the appointment of James Portelli as Consultant. James is a seasoned chartered insurance risk manager with 3 decades of experience in traditional (re)insurance and captive sectors across Europe and the Gulf Region. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute, a Fellow of the UK Institute of Risk Management and holds an MSC in Risk Management. He acts as non-executive director on a number of insurance companies as well as lecturing at the University of Malta. He resides in Malta.
Release of this annual “state of the nation” report on captives was delayed this year, for obvious reasons. But Marsh is to be congratulated for persevering (I know how time consuming gathering the data and report writing can be!) and issuing such an insightful document.

ter co hosting Global Captive Podcast #5, I was delighted that the organiser, Richard Cutcher, invited me to contribute to Podcast #9 , which considers how to move the captive industry forward.
