Banking & Finance Law
The Banking Act of 1994 regulates the domestic sector. E.U. Directives relative to the field are here the main reference for the regulatory and supervisory systems and procedures contained within the law. All banking and finance services offered domestically are regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority, which Authority is also responsible for issuing the relevant documentation in order that a bank may operate in Malta.
