Please complete the required fields.

The challenges of the new reality posed by the ongoing pandemic have not hindered the MFSA’s outreach and engagement with stakeholders in the financial services industry.

In September, the Authority organised two webinars:

  • 2 September – The Securities & Market Supervision function gave a general overview of an EU directive which aims to develop a new covered bond framework applicable across different financial sectors. The directive is based on the minimum harmonisation principle with the aim of defining the “covered bond” as an instrument recognised by EU financial regulation and to harmonise minimum quality standards of covered bonds across the EU.
  • 10 September – The MFSA organised a webinar on Money Laundering Risks Associated with Trustees and Company Service Providers. It brought together the different perspectives of all the local entities with a role to play in mitigating money laundering risks, including the National Coordination Committee on Anti-Money Laundering (NCC), the Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit (FIAU), and the Malta Business Registry (MBR). Christopher Buttigieg, Chief Officer Supervision, Emily Benson, Head, Petra Camilleri, Senior Manager, and Alison Cortis, Senior Technical Expert, within Conduct Supervision, addressed the webinar on behalf of the MFSA.
