New Insurance Supervisor
27 Sep 02
The FSC announces that Mr
Christopher Collins will replace Jim Costin as Insurance Supervisor. Mr
Collins will take up his position in mid October.
The FSC Commissioner, Martin Fuggle says-
"Mr Collins comes to the FSC from the Cayman Islands where (since 1998)
he has been Superintendent of Health Insurance based at the Cayman Islands
Monetary Authority ('CIMA'). From 1996 to 1998 he was Deputy Head of
Insurance Supervision at CIMA. He also has insurance market experience,
having run insurance companies in several countries. He is a Fellow of the
Chartered Insurance Institute and has degrees in German and Economics; he
is also a good linguist. He will bring both supervisory and valuable
insurance market experience to the job here in Gibraltar.
In welcoming Mr Collins, I have to express our thanks for all the work
Jim Costin, nobly assisted by Norman Ritchie, has done for the FSC in
putting in place the fundamental supervisory system for the insurance
sector here in Gibraltar. Insurancepassporting' was achieved in 1997
during Jim's tenure as Supervisor at the FSC and the positive assessment
we received under IMF Review published in March this year is testimony to
the solid foundation that has been put in place.
We wish Jim a happy retirement."
