FinanceMalta will be participating in nine face-to-face international industry and networking events in the coming months, after being restricted to online events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
FinanceMalta is a public-private initiative set up to promote Malta as an international financial centre.
The group said it was resuming its program in Europe and the Middle East. During the first week of November, it took part in four high-profile international events covering fintech, wealth management and insurance.
Between 2nd and 3rd November, FinanceMalta participated in the New Statesman Fintech Summit, held in London, as official panel sponsor of the summit. Thought leaders and senior figures from across the financial services industry presented key topics on regulations, technologies and trends that are shaping the world of fintech.
Meanwhile, The GCC Family Investor Annual Summit, held in Dubai on 3rd and 4th November, brought together respected family investment groups from across the Gulf Cooperation Council region.
Another event was the European Captive Forum, which the group described as “a great opportunity for the European captive industry to come together in-person for the first time in many months. Running across three content streams, the agenda was packed with case studies, practical insights and actionable deliverables – covering the biggest industry themes and topics.”
At the same time, FinanceMalta participated in the Family Office Forum, held in Zurich, with over 100 Swiss-based and international family offices and ultra-high-net-worth individuals
“Following a period of time during which we could only participate in events virtually, we are glad to finally be able to provide our esteemed members with the opportunity to participate and network in prestigious international events, which is at the heart of what FinanceMalta does. These activities are crucial to enable us to continue promoting Malta as a jurisdiction of choice for financial services, and to establish important business relations with partners and stakeholders from across the world,” said Rudolph Psaila, Chairman of FinanceMalta.
The forum was chaired by Chief Officer of Financial Stability and Statistics Alan Cassar
