RSM Malta

Financial services

As a result of Malta’s small size and limited resources, successive governments have focussed on the importance of the services industry for Malta’s economic sustainability, particularly the financial services industry. Particular attention has been devoted to establishing a sound regulatory regime and providing incentives to entice promoters to include Malta in their financial services operation. Malta is now becoming a leading jurisdiction for Financial Services operators, even more so following Malta’s accession to the European Union in 2004 and the adoption of the Euro in 2008.

The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) is the single regulator responsible for the supervision and regulation of financial services in Malta. The MFSA is an autonomous public institution and reports annually to Parliament. The MFSA is flexible in its approach to novel ideas while constantly ensuring that Maltese licensed entities are subjected to a firm and prudent regulatory regime.
