Ramon completed his Bachelor’s Degree with Honours in Economics, before joining ECOVIS Malta Limited, where he gained experience in the Trust Administration and Corporate Services.

During his seven years at ECOVIS, he was involved in all aspects of the group’s management, and a key member of ECOVIS GRC Limited where he was authorised by the MFSA to hold compliance and risk management positions with UCITS Management Companies and Alternative Investment Fund Managers.
Ramon Bondin, recently appointed CEO of Malta-based Dolfin Asset Services, announces our new custody and depositary licence on the island and how it will benefit our clients.
With common rules for funds across the EU, the idea of regulatory arbitrage is largely a thing of the past, but there are still some significant differences for managers to consider, says Ramon Bondin, CEO of Dolfin Asset Services (Malta).
The momentum of the Maltese economy shows no signs of abating. The country is well placed to become an important bridge between post-Brexit Britain and the EU, and to keep growing and diversifying. Moreover, it has embraced many of the latest digital sectors, including digital ledger technologies (blockchain) and crypto currencies, writes Ramon Bondin, CEO of Dolfin Asset Services.
