Training in Collective Investment Schemes, Malta


CSB Group and the Institute of Financial Services – Malta (ifs Malta) have joined forces to organise a training course in Collective Investment Schemes.

Taking place over a span of 10 hours, scheduled on the 9, 10, 15 & 17 October, the training sessions will be held at the Sonata Conference Hall, Golden Tulip Vivaldi Hotel in St.Julians.

The aim of this course is to introduce attendees to the main concepts and practical aspects of collective investment schemes. This will be achieved by analysing the provisions contained in the Maltese legal framework underpinning the various types of collective investment scheme (“CIS”) licences and the most recent legal developments brought about by the transposition of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive into Maltese Law. Among the various items on the agenda one can find: an analysis of the various collective investment scheme licences; the vehicles available to promoters wishing to licence a CIS; AIFMD and the Maltese regulatory scenario post AIFMD transposition.

Practitioners who may benefit from the course include accountants, financial services officers, bankers, lawyers, corporate services officers – therefore all practitioners who require practical information about collective investment schemes and on the most recent legal developments in the field.

The training sessions will be delivered by Dr Kurt Hyzler who obtained a Masters of Law degree in Banking and Finance Law from the University of London in 2007 and has since been practicing within the financial services industry in Malta.

As a further incentive, CSB Group and ifs Malta have communicated that they have made arrangements for accountants registered for this programme to claim structured CPE hours.
