Malta – An International Finance Centre

Malta¸ a small island state at the heart of the Mediterranean¸ has quietly emerged as one of Europe’s most stable and innovative finance domiciles. Just a decade ago¸ the  country was best known as a holiday destination. Malta’s decisions to join the European Union in 2004 and the eurozone in 2008 have proved pivotal to its development as a  major finance and business centre. Today¸ Malta has strong banking¸ insurance¸ fund and wealth management sectors that have attracted investment from the world’s leading  financial institutions¸ blue-chip multinationals and high-net-worth individuals.
