Posted by on Mar 30, 2011 in Local News & Alerts | 0 comments

The Argus Group today announces the relocation in Malta of the company it acquired in June 2010, Fogg Insurance Agencies Limited (Fogg). The relocation of Fogg to new offices at La Concorde in Ta’Xbiex demonstrates the Argus Group’s commitment to investing in and developing Fogg’s business operations.

Alison Hill, Chief Executive Officer of the Argus Group, says: “The Argus Group has been successful both here in Bermuda and with its operations in Gibraltar, so exporting this success to Malta, which shares market similarities, was a logical step for the Group. Fogg is an established and respected brand in Malta’s insurance market.

“The Argus Group has had a presence in Malta since 2005 via our relationship with Fogg acting as our agency, which was strengthened further through the Group’s acquisition of the company last year.  We are very proud to be operating in Malta and look forward to being able to leverage our strong international network to offer market leading insurance solutions in Malta.”

Andy Baker, Chief Executive of Argus Insurance Company (Europe) Limited, relocated to Malta from the Argus Gibraltar office last year to support and oversee the operation and expansion of the Fogg business.

Andy Baker says: “Fogg Insurance has been operating in Malta since 1966 and is a very well-known local brand. The winning combination of the Argus Group’s underwriting expertise, complemented by the excellent local market knowledge of Fogg’s strong management team will allow Fogg to offer customers unbeatable service, whilst welcoming new clients over the coming months.

“Fogg is also strengthening its existing operations by recruiting new staff, as well as offering continuing professional development opportunities to all staff, in line with the Argus Group’s core philosophy.”
