Dear Readers, 

We are very pleased to  announce the appointment of  George Vella as Chairperson of  FinanceMalta. He succeeds Rudolph Psaila who was at the helm of the organisation since October 2019.


We would like to thank Rudolph for the important work he did throughout the last years. It was an unprecedented  period in which our organisation, our industry and jurisdiction  had to face multiple challenges including a global pandemic that deeply impacted the way people had to work and interact.

We now look forward to working with our new Chairperson and have a very full agenda over the next months.

In addition to supporting a number of local events in the coming months, we’ll be promoting Malta at many international conferences.

In September we’ll be heading to Spear’s 500 in London and to the Nordic FinTech Week in Copenhagen, in October we will be attending Emex London 2022, and in November we’ll be at the European Captive Forum in Luxembourg before traveling to London for the Fintech Focus Summit, for the Emerging Managers Summit and the Private Wealth UK Autumn Forum.

We are also gearing up for our annual conference, which will take place between the 30th November and 1st December 2022 at the Eden Arena Conference Centre. We are going back to a full physical event as in pre-pandemic times. Follow us on our social media channels to learn more about the event.

In the meantime, we have prepared a number of articles and interviews we are sure you will find interesting.

Best wishes,
Ivan Grech
Chief Operations Officer
