The MALTA STOCK EXCHANGE has made it through AI’s rigorous judging process for the International Finance Awards 2014 to emerge as the clear winner of Most Innovative Stock Exchange.
The International Finance Awards celebrate achievement, innovation and brilliance from an international perspective, recognising individuals, teams and firms for their contribution to client service and for their experience and skills across key practice areas and sectors. Voted for by a worldwide network of professionals, advisers, clients, peers and business insiders, the Acquisition International Business Excellence Awards celebrate the individuals and firms whose commitment to excellence sees them exceeding clients’ expectations on a daily basis while setting the bar for others in their industry.
Each of the shortlisted entries was categorised by practice area, region and firm size to ensure the highest degree of fairness and then evaluated by the votes received, extensive in‐house research and any supporting evidence provided. The Awards, open to businesses from any sector or region, are now in their second year and are handed out solely on merit. They are given to only the mostdeserving businesses, departments and individuals who have consistently demonstrated outstanding innovation, performance and commitment to their business or clients over the past 12 months and who have received independent nominations from their clients or industry peers.
Speaking about the awards, Malta Stock Exchange CEO Ms Eileen V Muscat said: “The fact that we received this prestigious awarded is recognition of the dedication and investment that the Exchange has put into developing its services and creating an environment that makes Malta an attractive capital market domicile for companies seeking new sources of capital. The use of the Xetra trading platform and the close relationship we have with Deutsche Bourse in Frankfurt has helped to raise our profile overseas. We are also entering into new areas of operation, such as the facilitating and processing of EMIR related reporting of derivative trades, which shows our ability to be flexible and make the best of opportunities that come our way.
This year, I am pleased to point out that we are also registering very positive results in respect of new listings as well as trading turnover, so this augers well for the future development of the Maltese capital markets.”
