The growth of the financial services industry is partially characterised by the number of investment services providers setting up shop in Malta.
In accordance with Malta financial services legislation, the following activities require the issuance of an Investment Services Licence by the Malta Financial Services Authority:
- Reception and transmission of orders in relation to one or more instruments
- Execution of orders on behalf of other persons
- Dealing on own account
- Management of Investments
- Trustee, Custodian or Nominee Services
- Investment Advice
- Underwriting of instruments, or placing of instruments on a firm commitment basis
- Placing of instruments without a firm commitment basis
- Operation of a multilateral trading facility
- The reception, transmission and submission of a bid relating to emission allowances.
Whether you’re a fund manager, portfolio manager, investment broker, investment advisor or other investment service provider, we can assist during the set-up and licensing stage by preparing the necessary documentation and liaising with the Malta Financial Services Authority until such time as the licence or authorisation is obtained.
We also provide ongoing advisory in respect of matters of compliance while keeping you up to date with regulatory changes that can impact your business.
