With tightening regulatory environments prevailing in Europe and the US, many leading financial jurisdictions are facing uncertainties about how their domestic markets will react to anticipated changes which are being implemented. The Maltese Financial Services Industry is now competing head to head with other more established jurisdictions and is supported by the highly responsive Malta Financial Services Authority (‘MFSA’), which is proving key in preparing for the proposed changes.
The 3rd Annual Malta Spring Fund Conference, which will be co-sponsored by Abacus Fund Administration Limited, is scheduled to take place from 14th to 15th March at The Westin Dragonara, in St Julian’s Bay, Malta. The conference is being organised by ESAFON (The European & Swiss Network of Asset and Fund Managers) and will bring together various professionals from the funds industry. Discussions will take place on the implications for funds, managers and service providers, and will reflect on the high regulatory expectations associated with implementing the three directives: Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS IV), Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II).
Representing Abacus Fund Administration Limited will be Paul Kneen, Managing Director, Garry Crossan, Director, and Mario Psaila, General Manager. The team shall be promoting the full range of Abacus’ services which can assist with the establishment and ongoing operation of investment funds.
