The location of Malta, midway between Europe and Africa, has made the island state an important international trade hub and financial centre. Its inclusion in the Eurozone provides easy access to the European market.
English is one of the two official languages, and many Maltese have studied in the UK. Malta’s legal system has elements from both Roman and Common Law. The Maltese Financial Services Authority offers a robust but flexible regulatory scheme. For financial professionals and wealthy individuals from around the world, Malta is a popular place of residence, and a feasible one thanks to the country’s unique citizenship scheme. Registration of companies and vessels is relatively hassle-free thanks to very clear legislation. The Maltese banking system is known as one of the safest in the Eurozone, as banks in Malta are well capitalised and have high liquidity ratios.
