Why Malta?

Here are just a few of the reasons why Templar is based in Malta:

Malta is a European country and not what is referred to as “offshore”. It has robust regulation, recognised throughout Europe. The Malta Financial Services Authority is well established and highly respected.

It is an “onshore” jurisdiction with some 60 double taxation agreements with other leading jurisdictions world-wide. The legal system is based on British Common Law. It is commercially compliant with European trading practices such as tax, data protection and anti-money laundering.

Malta has an A3 rating with Moody’s, superior to several other EU countries such as Ireland (Baa1) and Italy (Baa2) – all as at 14.09.2015. The Maltese banks were largely unaffected by the Cypriot banking crisis of 2012 due to Malta’s tighter rules on capital adequacy and lending criteria.

Malta is an up and coming jurisdiction for both Fund Managers and Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme (QROPS) providers, due to its stable legal, regulatory and fiduciary framework and its well-educated, English speaking workforce. Malta won “Europe’s Favoured Domicile” in the Hedge Fund Service Provider 2013 rankings.

Malta has an excellent telecommunications network with high speed internet connections across the island as standard (60 Mbps typical, 250 Mbps possible).
Malta has been ranked as the 6th best place to retire to by Forbes/International Living in January 2015 and was rated as having the best climate in the World in 2011 by International Living Magazine. The average life expectancy is 80 years, ranked 26th in the world.

Trusts, Investments Funds, Foundations & Pension Administration in Malta

Malta joined the EU in May 2004 and these days is considered as a safe and trustworthy jurisdiction for the administration of assets. Factors such as the robustness of the regulatory framework, the reliable judicial system and the wealth of local administration and professional expertise are all key factors which have supported the growth of asset administration in Malta.
