The funds industry in Malta has best positioned itself to attract business from fund managers falling out of the scope of the EU Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), managing portfolios within the small-to-medium sized space. This is the area of the industry expected to attract the majority of future investments. Managers looking to take advantage of opportunities arising during the global pandemic, also benefited from the quick time to market the jurisdiction offers through certain fund typologies unique to the Maltese domicile.
