Investment Services


In this section you will find the Acts of Parliament which lay down the framework of the regulatory regime applicable to investment firms. These provide for the regulatory structure for the supervision of these entities and include, amongst others, the powers of the Authority to grant, refuse, cancel and suspend licences issued to investment firms and to impose sanctions on these entities in specific circumstances. These would also contain enabling clauses allowing the Minister responsible for the regulation of financial services to issue subsidiary legislation as well as the MFSA, as competent authority, to issue Rules to further supplement the provisions in the main Act.
