Financial services are a burgeoning commercial area in Malta. As such, there has been a substantial increase in companies and operations being transferred to, or establishing themselves in, Malta.
Malta’s entry into the eurozone with the resulting removal of foreign exchange risk, its OECD approved tax regime and its talented workforce are just some of the factors that have made the country extremely attractive to the financial sector.
Regulated by a number of legislative statutes — most of which are based on UK law — financial services are licensed by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA), a single, approachable regulatory body, mandated in overseeing banking, investment services, insurance and other financial services activity.
The main growth financial industries in Malta are:
- Banking and credit institution
- Electronic money institution
- Captive and retail insurance
- Collective investment schemes
- Investment funds
- Forex online trading
- Payment institutions
- Collective investment
