Malta has built a sound reputation as a stable economy and a generally business-friendly, tax-efficient and cost-effective Eurozone domicile for funds and securitisation transactions. Despite being the EU’s smallest member state, Malta has become a magnet for financial services. The country is a platform for international business and one of the most successful economies within the European Union.
Malta’s reputation for stability, predictability and security makes it an exception among other global financial centres. Financial services companies from around the world have been attracted by Malta’s robust, OECD and EU-compliant regulatory framework.
Malta has therefore increasingly become a jurisdiction of choice for collective investment schemes and structured finance. A strong but flexible regulatory framework, tailored income tax provisions and a network of approximately 70 double tax treaties have built Malta’s reputation as a jurisdiction for international financial structuring.
