MFCC - Malta Fairs & Conventions Centre, Ta' Qali
The MFSA will be taking part in the 2019 edition of the DELTA Summit, where it will be laying out its vision of establishing Malta as an international FinTech hub.
A highlight in our participation this year is the showcasing of our proposed Regulatory Sandbox approach. Through this initiative, we will be providing financial services entities with a controlled environment to test out their innovations for a specific period.
The Regulatory Sandbox will be presented in the context of The MFSA’s FinTech Strategy which was launched earlier this year in line with our objective to position Malta as a trailblazer and leader in this space. In creating this regulatory environment, we are at the same time securing investor protection, promoting market integrity and safeguarding financial stability.
Our team will be on stand H5 to welcome visitors on 3rd and 4th October. Delta will be an excellent opportunity for delegates to ask questions to the MFSA team directly about anything Fintech, including:
- VFA framework,
- Proposed Regulatory Sandbox,
- MFSA FinTech Strategy, and
- proposed STO policy.
We encourage you to book one-to-one meetings with our FinTech team ahead of the Summit by filling in your details below. When doing so, please make sure to submit a correct email address where we can reach you to confirm your meeting slot.
At our stand we will also be promoting our current employment opportunities for those interested in pursuing a career with Malta’s financial services regulator. If you’re looking for a job move, or you may be curious as to what the MFSA could offer, then do pop by. We’d love to meet you!
Follow us on our social media channels to see what we’re up to during the days of the Summit!
