Atlas Today

The Atlas Group of Companies forms one of Malta’s foremost insurance and financial services organisations with a staff complement of over 170. The flagship company of the Group is Atlas Insurance PCC Limited (“Atlas”), a general business insurer operating an extensive intermediary network across the islands.

Atlas was the first direct insurer to convert to a Protected Cell Company (PCC). Atlas gives promoters the opportunity to own their own EU insurance vehicle with less capital and less cost, also avoiding fronting requirements. Atlas is an independent PCC giving the option to promoters to outsource cell management to authorised insurance managers.

Cells in Atlas can also write third party risks, where our substantial active core provides added security and flexibility. The company maintains substantial surplus funds over regulatory requirements.

Atlas is a forward-looking insurer with ambitions for growth, always striving to identify and ready to exploit new business opportunities.

Another member of the group is Ark Insurance Management PCC Limited that provides insurance management services for international general insurance and reinsurance companies including captives, protected cell companies and ILS fund managers.

Ark also offers the hosting of management cells for third party foreign insurance managers which enables them to avail themselves of Ark’s local licensed insurance management services capability and representation at a lower cost when compared to obtaining a stand alone licence.
