Malta Financial Services Sector: A Success Story

Malta is a leading European financial centre which combines high regulatory standards and rigorous enforcement with a commercial, business savvy attitude. The financial sector has achieved rapid growth since the country's 2004 accession to the EU and the island is now rightly seen as having a sound and sophisticated financial system. This has led various businesses to choose Malta as their home, including hedge funds, insurance captives, fund managers, investment services providers, credit institutions, insurance intermediaries and forex operators of various types. Thanks to its EU members, low cost and fiscal base, English speaking workforce and geographical location, Malta is very well suited to the role of international financial centre, and is particularly well adapted to serving as a platform and base of operations of businesses looking to penetrate the European and North African markets.
