FinanceMalta, a non-profit public-private initiative, was set up to promote Malta as an international business and financial centre, both within as well as outside Malta. It brings together and harnesses the resources of the industry and government to ensure Malta maintains a modern and effective legal, regulatory and fiscal framework in which the financial services sector can continue to grow and prosper.

Malta is internationally recognised as a brand denoting excellence in financial services. It offers an attractive cost- and tax-efficient base for financial services operators looking for a European Union-compliant, yet flexible, domicile.

FinanceMalta came on the scene at a critical time just as Malta entered the eurozone. The financial services sector is now a major force in the country’s economy. Malta has some significant strengths to offer the industry such as a well-trained, motivated workforce; a low-cost environment; and an advantageous tax regime backed up by more than 60 double taxation agreements. To these, FinanceMalta can add a world-class information and communications technology infrastructure, English as an official language, an enviable climate and its strategic location.

The Board of Governors, together with the founding associations – The Malta Funds Industry Association, the College of Stockbrokers, the Malta Bankers Association, the Malta Insurance Association, the Association of Insurance Brokers, the Malta Insurance Managers Association and the Institute of Financial Services Practitioners – its corporate and affiliate members, and staff are committed to promoting Malta as a centre of excellence in financial services and international business.
