European Fund Domicile

European Fund Domicile

Malta’s reputation as a European fund domicile is rising fast, with an increasing number of funds choosing to set up on the island. Malta was in fact named 'most favoured domicile in Europe' for investment funds in the Hedge Funds Review Service Provider Rankings in both 2013 and 2014. The Malta Financial Services Authority’s (MFSA) regulatory regime through the Investment Services Act allows for the setting up of two principal classes of schemes, namely, Retail Schemes and Professional Investor Funds (PIFs). It has positioned Malta on a level playing field with other European Union countries, and introduced passporting rights so that investment services and UCITS schemes may be registered in Malta and passported to any EU country. This increased interest has not only attracted funds to be registered here, but also a large number of fund managers and administrators who are recognising Malta’s potential to become one of the leading European destinations for fund registrations, management and administration.
