Malta as Preferred Funds Jurisdiction

Malta Retains Status As Preferred Funds Jurisdiction

Malta has been a favoured fund jurisdiction since joining the European Union. The fund industry has flocked to Malta due to the introduction of favourable, simple and efficient legislation which caters for the interests of both the fund business as well as the investors. Fund managers and promoters may choose from a set of frameworks available, including SICAVs, unit trusts, investment companies with a variable share capital and Professional Investor Funds (PIFs) in order to meet their objectives.

This, together with the fact that investment funds that are registered in Malta may be passported to any of the other twenty seven EU member states and a low cost and advantageous fiscal base have pushed the number of funds registered in Malta to well over six hundred.

Earlier in 2016, the Malta Financial Services Authority announced its intention to consolidate and reduce the number of fund frameworks which are available to fund promoters in terms of the Investment Services Act and the applicable Investment Services Rules. This aims at streamlining fund legislation, making it simpler for fund managers and promoters to find their way amongst the sometimes overlapping laws and better explaining the rights and obligations of all the players in the industry.

The authority is now seeking feedback from the industry on the proposals it is putting forward in an attempt to get everyone on board and make this exercise a truly collective one, ensuring that the changes are the best possible so as to take the industry forward and guaranteeing its long-term viability.
