H.E. Dr Emmanuel Mallia, Minister for Competitiveness and Digital, Maritime and Services Economy of Malta was also present to witness the event.   

    The MoU establishes a strategic platform for ADGM and FM to share expertise and pertinent information on banking, financial services and products, securities legislation and regulatory practice in each market. As part of the agreement, ADGM and FM will explore mutually beneficial projects and activities that further develop human capital capabilities and foster greater growth in both financial markets.

    Mr. Richard Teng, Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) of ADGM said:  “This MoU marks an important development in our on-going engagement and collaboration with FinanceMalta. By harnessing our expertise and experience, financial institutions and companies can further expand their global footprints through ADGM’s internationally recognised platform.  I look forward to the two teams working closely and playing our part in developing the financial services sectors in our respective markets, and supporting our businesses and stakeholders in achieving their growth plans.”

This MoU will be an important catalyst in our thrust to strengthen the visibility and relevance of Malta as an EU based financial services domicile in the Gulf, and we are extremely delighted with this development.
