    STEP MALTA Conference
We are pleased to announce Michael Sippitt, Chairman of Clarkslegal and the Commonwealth Environmental Investment Platform, will be speaking at STEP Malta Conference.

Malta has lead Europe in its growth in the Financial Services and in general economic terms and this will be highlighted in the opening speech by the Hon. Prof. Edward Scicluna, Malta’s Minister for Finance.

The agenda for the two day conference presents some of today’s hot topics for Trustees and the Financial Services industry. Getting back to the heart of trusteeship with Succession planning and the current regulations. A review of the current trust litigation from an insider.  Where are the opportunities and threats in Brexit? The dimension of compliance for the Modern Trustee; implementing the EU 4AMD, Trust Register(s) specifically, the arrival of automatic exchange of tax information and the impact of GDPR.

There are still many business opportunities as we hear about; Malta’s Family Trust Regime, a fresh look at Malta Companies and Malta Foundations, Charitable Foundations and Trusts, Citizenship and Residency, the expanding African Continent, the trustees interaction with investment managers, green investing, how to manage private trading companies and super yachts.   Trustees gain further exposure to the expert world of FINTECH.  We complete the two days with a varied panel of four practitioners who regularly set up and administer today’s trust arrangements.
