Malakite is a MENA region focused MGA & Lloyd’s Cover-Holder. We have positioned ourselves as a “plug & play” MENA market entry point for Lloyd’s capacity and an efficient alternative to operating a wholly owned subsidiary or branch office.


With robust underwriting guidelines and full operational support from founding partner, StarStone Insurance Services Ltd. (SISL), Malakite offers brokers & their clients a nimble, flexible & opportunistic alternative to local branches of large multi-national Corporates.


Malakite offers locally relevant specialty capacity, products & service.
