Malta: FinanceMalta Hosts Successful 9th Annual Conference
Last Updated: 6 June 2016

The FinanceMalta 9th Annual Conference has once again proved to be a resounding success with over 350 delegates and guests attending the event, surpassing last year's figures. The conference, with the theme "Malta's Financial Service Industry, Sustaining Growth Through Innovation", was held on the 26th May 2016 at the Hilton Conference Centre. A pre-conference networking event was held on the 25th May 2016 at the Blue Elephant restaurant, which was attended by almost 200 guests.

FinanceMalta chairman Kenneth Farrugia opened the conference, speaking about the work of FinanceMalta and the future plans for promoting Malta as a financial services centre to Europe and beyond, mentioning that FinanceMalta had organised events in New York, in February, and was gearing up for more events throughout the year.

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. 

There were several panel sessions throughout the day and three concurrent workshops in the afternoon which discussed the themes of Pension Funds, Securitisation and Private equity and Venture Capital Funds, respectively.

FinanceMalta wishes to thank all the sponsors, including Credorax who were the main sponsors of the event; as well as Castille, KONNEKT Search & Selection, Managing Partners Group, Swissquote Group Holding Ltd, Bank of Valletta, Fenech & Fenech Advocates, Melita, Linedata and Citadel Insurance.
