Investment Services

The Investment Services Act of 1994 sets up the regulatory framework for investment services and for collective investment schemes; it provides, similarly to corresponding E.U. Directives in the field, for different types of licenses. All investment services offered in or from Malta must necessarily meet with the thorough criteria set by the Malta Financial Services Authority.

Micallef & Ellul Advocates has assisted numerous clients in obtaining the licences referred to and in meeting the above-mentioned criteria; the firm has also advised clients with regard to the closely related issues of fund management, retail investor funds and retirement funds and schemes.
