Program Highlights Malta’s Fund-Friendly Environment

A program sponsored by FinanceMalta – a public-private venture promoting Malta as a financial center – provided an overview of private fund formation in Malta; the advantages of domiciling funds and managers there; the nation’s regulatory and tax regimes; and its emerging approach to blockchain and cryptocurrency.
