IFSP Conference 2024

Malta’s Financial Services Proposition – A Status Check

22nd May 2024
Hilton, St. Julians

The IFSP Annual Conference is expected to attract around 250 of the leading financial services practitioners on the island, who between them represent over 120 financial services firms catering to international clients as well as the domestic market. Coming from the largest accounting and law firms to mid-sized and smaller advisory firms and even sole practitioners, delegates attend the IFSP conference for a valuable discussion on the current issues, challenges and opportunities for financial services in and from Malta.

More information will be available on social media through #ifspconf2024.
