Argentarius was one of the exhibitor sponsor at the FinanceMalta 8th Annual Conference, which was held on the 21st May 2015 at the Grand Master Suite, Hilton Hotel, St Julian’s, Malta.

Prior to the conference, on the eve of 20th May 2015, a networking cocktail event was hosted at the Quarterdeck Bar, Hilton Malta by Mr. Kenneth Farrugia, Chairman of FinanceMalta and manager of the event. The gathering served as a great occasion for meeting with practitioners and advisers and for exchanging of thoughts. Our team was very pleased to have valuable conversations about securitisation for underlying assets for UCITS funds based in Malta.

At the conference key players and professionals in financial services gathered from all around the world for the opportunity to keep updated with local and international developments in the sector. Among the guests were: Deloitte, Deutsche Bank, EY, EFAMA, Fenech & Fenech Advocates, Grando Advocates, HSBC, KPMG, MFSA, Malta Stock Exchange, PwC, SAXO Banque and VFM.

This year’s theme focused on ‘Malta’s Financial Services Industry: Building on Success, Reaching New Horizons’. In the morning session the spotlight was on regulation, the plausibility of Islamic finance, pensions and Malta’s capital market. In the afternoon workshops had addressed three subjects: funds and the new regulatory environment, insurance and the impact of Solvency II and residency & citizenship. This was followed by debates on present and future skills in the business and Malta’s vision for the industry and economy.

The conference hosted a record number of experts, more than 250 local and foreign financial decision makers. It has become an absolute must to attend the event for anyone involved in financial services directly or indirectly according to Malta’s Deputy Prime Minister Hon Mr. Louis Grech.

We have met interesting business prospects and would like to thank FinanceMalta for organizing such a successful event. We look forward to participating on their future events.
