On Monday 18th February, the Malta Stock Exchange
announced the approval of Joh. Berenberg, Grossler & Co KG of
Hamburg, Germany as a Member of the Exchange.
Berenberg Bank, as is it popularly known, will be the
13th Member of the Exchange, and signifies an
interesting development in the history of the Exchange since it is
the first international member of the Exchange. This development is

registry as well as custodial services, augers well for the
development of new business for the Exchange.
