Abstract: W. H. Davenport has shown that the derivation algebra $ \mathfrak{D}(A)$ of a semisimple Malcev algebra $ A$ of characteristic 0 acts completely reducibly on $ A$. The purpose of the present note is to characterize those Malcev algebras which have such derivation algebras as those whose radical is central and to obtain the same result for Lie triple systems. Analogous results are known to hold for standard and alternative algebras.
