Overview

Building on the initiatives to establish Malta as a global thought leader in the innovative economy, the MFSA is now also focusing its efforts towards supporting this revolution, and establishing a holistic and robust FinTech sector for both start-ups and industry incumbents.

With the financial sector changing rapidly, the MFSA is embarking on a proactive shift to ensure that its strategic objectives contribute towards effective investor protection, market integrity and financial soundness in the FinTech environment.

The Malta Virtual Financial Assets (VFA) Framework is a modest beginning to the MFSA FinTech journey, followed by the MFSA FinTech Strategy which presents a wider, cross-sectorial approach underpinned by six strategic pillars. Read more about these initiatives in the respective sections below.
