AE works with both local and International banks, pension providers, credit institutions and other financial service firms and payment service providers, delivering advice on a broad range of legal, regulatory and compliance issues.
Over recent years the Maltese banking system has undergone rapid development and is continually changing to reflect industry needs.
The Maltese Banking Act and regulations, as well as the rules and practices of the Malta Financial Services Authority, are entirely in line with the European Union. The MFSA has exerted a commitment to make Malta a key financial centre of Europe and in doing so has reduced bureaucracy, streamlined procedures and has lowered fees and compliance costs without compromising economic stability. This modernisation, as well as the flexibility and dynamism of the Maltese banking and regulatory systems, have made Financial Services Malta’s fastest growing industry, and an appealing jurisdiction for both new and established financial and credit institutions.
