Malta’s proposition for the UK’s financial services industry was presented to industry professionals last month at London’s Guildhall by FinanceMalta and practitioners from the financial services industry.
The London-based event was aimed at highlighting the advantages and high level of services that the Maltese jurisdiction has to offer to UK companies seeking to relocate to other jurisdictions. The event kicked off with a keynote address, followed by four focused panel discussions on asset management, insurance, private wealth and blockchain. Each discussion was held concurrently in separate rooms featuring a different panel for each topic.
Speaking about FinanceMalta’s participation, Wayne Pisani, Finance Malta governor, said: “The aim of our participation in this event was twofold. On one hand to network with leading UK and international stakeholders and on the other to promote Malta as a financial services centre of international repute.”
Dr Pisani added: “Malta has evolved into a platform for financial activity drawing on its rich history boasting millennia of mercantile activity as a business hub in the heart of the Mediterranean. As an EU jurisdiction with a robust and innovative regulatory framework, excellent infrastructure and a balmy Mediterranean climate, Malta is the ideal financial services platform for businesses looking to tap a strong double tax treaty network with EMEA markets and beyond.”
