The Malta Financial Services Authority has published a Discussion Paper for stakeholders reviewing the Asset Management Strategy, with the main intention to bolster the sector’s capacity to mitigate current and future risks, on the back of an increasingly evolving global regulatory and competitive landscape.
With a range of regulatory initiatives, improvements to the MFSA’s internal processes as well as proposed revisions to the framework for asset managers and investment funds in Malta, this review is intended to provide the sector with higher levels of regulatory soundness and stability, through a more pragmatic and dynamic approach to policy making, as well as more streamlined processes in terms of MFSA authorisation and supervision.
On the back of the strong reputation Malta has built, as an attractive jurisdiction for fund platforms, the MFSA has emphasised the importance to maintain and improve this attractiveness, by promoting a healthy and resilient financial sector built on high standards of compliance and governance.
