Argentarius attended the 9th Edition of the Finance Malta Annual Conference held at the Hilton Conference Centre on 26 May 2016. This year the Conference had the theme “Malta’s Financial Service Industry, Sustaining Growth through Innovation” and proved to be a resounding success with over 350 delegates and guests attending the event, surpassing last year’s figures.

The conference was addressed by Dr Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta who stated that innovation must be main strength in growing Malta as a financial services sector, and Prof. Edward Scicluna, Minister for Finance (Malta) who also emphasised the importance of innovation in pushing the economic sectors forward. The conference was also host to various international speakers including Dario Scannapieco, Vice-President of the European Investment Bank, Ignazio Angeloni who is a Member of the Supervisory Board of the European Central Bank, Ward Greenberg from Cleary Gottlieb Stien & Hamilton, the Irish Financial Ombudsman, Ger Deering, and motivational speaker Julie Meyer.

Argentarius was one of the sponsors and chairman Andreas Woelfl moderated an interesting panel on securitisation in one of the afternoon sessions. During the workshop a number of securitisation transactions were discussed in detail and the attendants participated with some interesting interventions.
