Regulated Financial Services in Malta
Get in Touch with NAME
Malta’s comprehensive legal and regulatory framework has attracted a large number of financial services operators to its shores. CSB Group’s specialised and experienced team of professionals offers bespoke advisory and support to reputable operators in the financial services industry, assisting with legal, licensing and regulatory requirements to establish operations in Malta.
The Regulated Financial Services Industry in Malta
The financial services industry has been one of the main driving forces behind Malta’s economic success over the past 15 years and it is without a doubt that Malta’s European Union membership has been a major role player within this success story. Malta’s full EU membership ensures that the island is adequately equipped to provide a one-stop-shop service to any reputable entity and/or person who wishes to establish presence in Malta and/or passport in/out of the island (as the case may be).
Malta now houses numerous businesses ranging from hedge funds to insurance distributors, fund managers, credit institutions, forex operators and investment services providers, amongst others. The island’s status as a Member State instils a sense of security and ensures that the jurisdiction maintains high regulatory standards, which in turn result in added value to Malta’s reputation as a European financial services hub. Furthermore, Malta boasts low set-up and operational costs, all the while still maintaining high EU compliance standards,
The Single Regulator for Financial Services in Malta
The financial services industry in Malta is regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA). The authority aims at strengthening Malta’s position as a forward looking financial center by implementing regulation that fosters market integrity, innovation while supporting new technologies. The MFSA's ultimate aim is to enable the industry to develop new products and services within a sound regulatory environment.
We have been using the services of CSB Group in their remit as security trustees for our recent bond issue. We have found CSB to be highly efficient and effective in their work. We will not hesitate to use their services in the future and would recommend them to any of our clients and partners seeking similar services.
The choice of CSB Group was naturally imposed when I decided to establish my private collective investment scheme in Malta. In addition to a strong overseas reputation, it is one of the three largest and probably the most serious Maltese business advisory firms. The whole Regulated Industries and Corporate Services Team is very meticulous, attentive, and all of them would be happy to bend over backwards to advance your projects. This firm and its team are the ambassadors of one of the best onshore jurisdictions in the world.
