Authorised and regulated by the UK’s FCA to provide investment accounts, we are bound by CASS rules to segregate and protect client assets.
Dolfin’s membership means that the traders in Malta and our clients have direct access to Malta’s securities market, both in bonds and equities. The move builds on the Dolfin Group’s ambition to offer a true one-stop-shop to our clients – for investment accounts, execution, or asset management – regardless of whether they custody their assets in London or Malta. We already provide our international clients with UK investor visa solutions and plan to offer them a similar service for Malta.
Membership of the MSE also gives us access to the Maltese central security depository and increases our efficiency by enabling trading directly through the MSE without going through an intermediary.
Ramon Bondin, CEO of Dolfin Asset Services in Malta, said: “Our membership of the MSE demonstrates our ongoing commitment to financial services in Malta. Since opening our office in Valletta this April, we have continued to grow and invest in the financial centre. Our membership enables us to provide our clients with a faster, more efficient service while further embedding our roots in Malta.”
We secured our Malta custody and depository licence earlier this year making our firm the first provider on the island to offer access to depositary facilities with London-based custody. Acquiring membership with the MSE further solidifies our position in Malta’s growing financial services industry.
Joseph Portelli, Chairman at the Malta Stock Exchange, said: “The Malta Stock Exchange is pleased to be welcoming Dolfin as our newest member. Dolfin is the second broker affiliated with the exchange which has a strong international presence. Attracting foreign-based brokers is testament that the Malta Stock Exchange will have a growing international footprint”.
