The Institute of Financial Services Practitioners (IFSP) is soon to host its 2022 annual conference, with an impressive line-up of keynote speakers.
An essential annual fixture for Malta’s financial services industry, this year’s full-day IFSP Conference will take place on April 7 at The Xara Lodge, Rabat, or online for those unable to attend in person.
The 2022 IFSP Conference is a valuable opportunity for industry practitioners to meet, network and discuss the hottest issues currently faced by financial services. Following the theme Revitalising Financial Services – Mapping a Sustainable Path for Malta, a panel of expert speakers will lead discussions across a variety of topics including AML requirements, the challenges of recent tax developments and how to best support the nation’s financial services in the wake of the FATF greylisting.
Joining IFSP President Tonio Zarb (KPMG), keynote speakers at the event will include Joseph Gavin (MFSA), Geraldine Spiteri Lucas (MBR), Joseph Zammit Tabona, David Delicata (Deloitte), Geraldine Schembri (MIT), Stephen Attard (Ganado Advocates), Neville Gatt (PWC), Andre Zarb (KPMG), Conrad Cassar Torregiani (Deloitte), Robert Attard (EY), Mirko Rapa Manche (PWC), Malcolm Falzon (Camilleri Preziosi), Juanita Brockdorff (KPMG), Etienne Borg Cardona (Capital Advisory) and Juanita Bencini.
“We are honoured to welcome to the IFSP Conference a host of keynote speakers from the worlds of politics and financial services, each a specialist within their respective field,” says Mr Zarb. “Guided by their experience and knowledge, professionals from across this hugely important economic sector can together determine a more sustainable and reputable way forward for the industry.”
As ‘the voice of the financial services industry in Malta’, the IFSP brings together financial services professionals to safeguard the sector in close collaboration with regulators and the authorities, while clearly communicating the perspectives of those working within it. At the 2022 conference, participants can share their views in two specialised breakout sessions on the recently proposed tax directives and on aspects of the CSP regulations. The programme will also feature panel discussions and keynote speeches on the sector’s economic contribution and ongoing strategy, international financial centres, the latest MBR developments, Malta’s tax system, corporate governance and the progress of Malta’s removal from the FATF greylist.
