Malta’s Fund Industry

Malta’s positioning as an international EU-based fund and asset management domicile presents a compelling proposition for fund managers either planning to set up or redomicile their funds or asset management operations to Europe. The growth of Malta as a fund domicile has been spearheaded by the registration of numerous funds under the Professional Investor Fund (PIF) regime; a regime unique to Malta and which allowed for the internationalisation of the domicile.

Malta continues to increasingly enjoy recognition as a fund domicile of repute due to a number of unique advantages offered by the domicile including, but not limited to:

  • The strategic geographic location and time-zone
  • Strong and stable economic status
  • English as an official language
  • Robust legal and regulatory framework
  • Highly developed operational and services framework
  • Highly skilled and multilingual workforce
  • A single regulator with a pro-business approach
  • Time-to-market considerations
  • Cost efficiencies
  • Tax considerations
