Investment Services are regulated by the Investment Services Act. The regulatory regime in Malta adopts a stepped up approach wherein investment services are categorised in different categories. Deloitte Malta can assist with these service requirements.

Investment Services are regulated by the Investment Services Act (Cap. 370 of the Laws of Malta) (the “ISA”/the “Act”). This law establishes the regulatory framework for Investment Services Licences. The Investment Services Act, the Regulations and Investment Services Rules issued thereunder incorporate the transposition of EU legislation on investment services, the most important of which remains the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Directive 2004/39/EC)(Mifid).

The regulatory regime in Malta adopts a stepped up approach wherein investment services are categorised in different categories. Regulatory obligations including capital and substance requirements vary in accordance to the licence category and investment service offered. In this way a single regulatory regime caters for investment services as diverse as investment advisory, discretionary portfolio management and online trading /brokerage. Regulated investment services companies in Malta can avail themselves of the opportunity to offer their services across the European Union through the passporting mechanism.
