Regulating for success

Malta’s government is firmly behind the development of financial services and hedge funds specifically. The finance ministry is set to play a key role in encouraging that development both domestically and internationally.


For Tonio Fenech, Malta’s minister of finance, economy and investment, hedge funds are “clearly one of the important and growing sectors” of financial services. Since 2004 when the island state jointed the EU, financial services have become a key component of economic expansion.

The hedge fund industry and alternatives in general has found a strong advocate in Fenech, who is keen to ensure appropriate legislation that encourages the industry rather than stifles it.
