The regulation of pensions under the Special Funds (Regulation) Act and the promotion of Malta as a base to administer foreign personal pensions, has triggered a market for Malta to be used as a base for QROPS, QNUPS and other UK linked pension products that have been in place since 2009.
On the local front on the other hand, the introduction of a mandatory second pillar pension system and voluntary third pillar pensions is touted as the next step in the implementation of the 2006 pension reform, hopefully opening up the local market to the introduction of new personal and occupational pension products for the local market.
The provisions of the new Retirement Pensions Act of 2011 and the new Tax Guidance Notes for Retirement Schemes and Retirement Benefits issued in July of 2012 are also anticipated to spur activity on the market, making it easier for pension funds to locate their activities in Malta.
This course will delve into the current issues and future challenges of the private pension market and will provide attendees with a broad outline of the current legal, tax and regulatory framework for Maltese pensions.
The course is ideal for private retirement schemes professionals, insurance or corporate services companies with an interest in pensions and retirement schemes, personal wealth managers, asset managers, banks and custodians, trustees, professionals who are interested in the subject and students
