The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) has built a solid reputation as a meticulous, yet accessible, supervisory body, ensuring that the local industry is closely monitored and fully compliant.
This unified regulatory structure has enhanced the potential for both local and international financial players and further strengthened the jurisdiction’s reputation, introducing more competitive fees and compliance costs and better standards of quality.
The promising development of Malta as an international financial centre is reflected in the range of financial services available. Malta continues to be positively ranked for its performance in the financial sector, with a financial services industry both diversified and rich in depth.
The MFSA has adopted a pro-business approach in order to further contribute to Malta’s growth, and operates locally, at European level and is also willing to reach globally. The MFSA has a staff of over 234 people, consisting of specialist regulators, lawyers, accountants and support staff facilitating the formulation of policy, decision making and support for both licence holders and consumers, and also houses the International Tax Unit of the Inland Revenue Department and the Registry of Companies.
