Innovation

Reimagined, renewed and refashioned

Malta is where regulatory innovation and emerging technologies complement each other, creating the right conditions for financial  companies, both big and small, to thrive. Add to this a seasoned talent pool, strong language skills, a competitive business environment and high quality of life, and it becomes clear why investors believe in Malta, its potential and its future.

Malta is transforming its finance centre and unlocking a wave of new opportunities. The Malta strategy is to out-manoeuvre incumbent finance centres by harnessing its nimbleness and coupling it with digital financial innovation to deliver new product lines and a path to faster and more sustainable growth.

A booming economy with high GDP growth and record-low unemployment, Malta has emerged as one of the most remarkable success stories in the Eurozone. Recognised for its pro-business attitude, state-of-the-art infrastructure and modest costs of doing business, it has become the go-to country for growth-minded entrepreneurs and multinational companies. Famous for its 7,000-year history and 300 days of sunshine, three UNESCO world heritage sites and cosmopolitan Mediterranean island lifestyle, Malta is a melting pot of old and new, local and global, work and play.

With a sophisticated ICT infrastructure that is well connected to the international backbone, a high broadband penetration, and a competitive market with the latest technologies like VoIP, Malta is able to offer the right environment for business.

Globally, the financial services industry is approaching a new digital frontier, and with a keen eye on the future, Malta is taking a fresh look at the sector and has set itself the ambitious target of providing financial firms with a technologically advanced top-tier regulatory and business environment. The clear aim is to be a global player in the regulated digital finance and fintech space.
