Malta High Commission Event: Hedge Fund Management in Malta

On the 19th of February 2013 our firm will be delivering a breakfast briefing at the Malta High Commission in London (36-38 Piccadilly). You can register here: Further details below.

About Malta as a Hub for Hedge Fund Management

Since EU accession in 2004, the Maltese financial services industry has gone from strength to strength, and the jurisdiction is now a well established centre of excellence for funds, investment services providers, forex operators, credit institutions, insurance captives and various other financial businesses. One of the key drivers of this growth has been the alternative investment funds industry, with the jurisdiction now playing host to hundreds of alternative funds pursuing a diversity of investment strategies. The professional investor fund, the Malta hedge fund product, has proven to be a remarkably popular vehicle, thanks to its flexibility and soundness.

Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates focus on Malta Hedge Fund Management

In recent months, the jurisdiction has started to attract, in addition to fund structures, the relative fund management enterprises as well. Chetcuti Cauchi’s briefing will engage with the regulatory, fiscal and business environment elements that are underpinning this development. The briefing will include a 30 minute presentation by Dr Charles Cassar focusing on fund regulation and business environment, and a 30 minute presentation by Dr Jean-Philippe Chetcuti focusing on tax considerations for Malta domiciled fund managers. There will also be an opening address by His Excellency the High Commissioner Joseph Zammit Tabona. The briefing will be followed by a question and answer session, and will conclude by 10am. The briefing should be of interest to fund managers, investment advisors, regulatory lawyers, as well as financial services practitioners who are interested in understanding better the technical building blocks of the Maltese funds industry success story.
