As the financial services sector is a highly regulated one, regulatory laws and underlying principles will also be considered.

Who should attend ?

This course will be of great benefit to all persons who work in the banking, insurance and investment services sectors of the financial services industry who have not received extensive education in law but who inevitably must deal with a substantial number of laws on a daily basis.

CONTRIBUTORS 

Kristina Miggiani, student, about An Introduction to Maltese Financial Services Law held in October / November 2011 :
“The course not only gave me an unparalleled insight into the financial services law in Malta but also gave me the tools to understand and apply the relevant law. The well-organised course commenced by giving an introduction into the fundamental principles of law and then seamlessly weaved these fundamentals into the detailed examination of various areas of financial services law, expounded by expert lawyers in the field.”
