Malta Alternative Companies List

Malta Alternative Companies Listing offers the benefit of EU Passporting

Malta Alternative Companies List

Malta enjoys a bi-partisan, stable, political climate that is largely convergent on issues of national and economic importance. Malta and Germany were the only two states in the Euro Zone maintaining economic growth during the financial crisis. Malta has been a member of the EU since 2004 and adopted the Euro currency in 2008.

The Malta Alternative Companies List (ACL) is a Malta Stock Exchange (MSE) initiative aimed at providing listing opportunities for companies and investors with the potential to grow, yet do not fulfill the rigorous requirements for MSE Official Listing. Listing on the ACL offers the benefit of EU Passporting, as well as, international recognition.
