In the midst of a collapsing financial world and an ever-tightening fiscal policy in the European Union, Malta still stands out as a safe and stable jurisdiction for companies to relocate, largely unaffected by the ever-increasing global crises brought about by banking, mortgage and debt. Prudence permeates this Mediterranean island economy, where the maxim of "saving for the rainy day" has been carried on over generations.
Apart from the attraction of the sun and the sea, Malta has emerged in the last decade as a reputable financial services jurisdiction. Malta hosts thousands of international companies that have registered and is using Malta as a springboard for international business and financial activities. With the level of companies forming and relocating to the island at a record high, Malta is increasingly being used for licensable activities and providing financial services which require a base within the European Union.
