About Us

The Institute of Financial Services Practitioners is an association of practitioners working across the entire range of financial services. The Institute’s membership includes lawyers and accountants as well as practitioners from other professions.

Who we are and what we do

The membership of the Institute of Financial Services Practitioners ranges across the entire spectrum of the financial services industry: from bankers to insurers to stockbrokers to lawyers, accountants and trustees. The Institute provides a forum for the continuous exchange of ideas and even increased co-operation between various professions. In effect, the Institute represents a distinct and separate professional person – the financial services practitioner. 

The IFSP has obtained recognition as the body representing financial services practitioners in Malta. In this capacity, the Institute of Financial Services Practitioners keeps itself fully up to date of developments in financial services regulation, and is regularly consulted by the competent authorities on important issues. The Institute keeps in close contact with the regulatory authorities, and in particular with the MFSA and the Ministry of Finance. 

Through the IFSP, practitioners are able to communicate their suggestions, concerns and at times frustrations in a cohesive manner to the regulatory authorities and to the Government.

President’s Welcome Note

Welcome to our updated website where you will find information about some of the initiatives that the IFSP is involved in as well as details about upcoming webinars, training events and membership. We encourage all members to get actively involved through the various sub-committees as a great way to contribute to the role of the IFSP as it uses the insights of practitioners to engage in discussions with regulators, legislators and various stakeholders across the financial services industry to maintain Malta as a competitive and attractive EU jurisdiction in a fast changing landscape.
