FinanceMalta is the public-private initiative set up to promote Malta as an International Financial Centre.
Malta is internationally recognised as a brand denoting excellence in financial services. It offers an attractive cost- and tax-efficient base for financial services operators looking for a European Union-compliant, yet flexible, domicile.
FinanceMalta came on the scene at a critical time – just as Malta entered the Eurozone. The financial services sector is now a major force in the country’s economy. Malta has some significant strengths to offer the industry such as:
- a well-trained, motivated workforce;
- a low-cost environment;
- an advantageous tax regime backed up by more than 70 double taxation agreements;
- a world-class information and communications technology infrastructure;
- English as an official language;
- an enviable climate;
- a strategic location.
FinanceMalta, a non-profit public-private initiative, was set up to promote Malta as an international business and financial centre within, as well as outside, Malta. It brings together and harnesses the resources of the industry and government to ensure Malta maintains a modern and effective legal, regulatory and fiscal framework in which the financial services sector can continue to grow and prosper.
The Board of Governors, together with the founding associations – the Malta Funds Industry Association, the College of Stockbroking Firms, the Malta Bankers Association, the Malta Insurance Association, the Association of Insurance Brokers, the Malta Insurance Managers Association and the Institute of Financial Services Practitioners – its corporate and affiliate members, and staff are committed to promoting Malta as a centre of excellence in financial services and international business.
