Investment Services Act

    Investment Services in Malta are regulated by the Investment Services Act (ISA) as amended by Act XXII of 2014. The Act provides the statutory basis for the licensing and regulation of persons and companies wishing to set up investment service undertakings and collective investment schemes. An ‘investment service’ is defined by the ISA as any service falling within the First Schedule to the Act when provided in relation to an instrument. The provision of an Investment Service in relation to an instrument triggers a requirement for the obtainment of an Investment Services Licence from the MFSA.
