Malta is situated at the strategic heart of the Mediterranean within easy reach of Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. It is an independent republic, a full member of the Commonwealth and the European Union, including the Eurozone, and has its own combined civil and common law-based system while also being subject to all EU Directives.
Malta is internationally recognised as a jurisdiction providing excellence in financial services. It offers an attractive cost and tax-efficient base for clients looking for an EU-compliant, yet flexible, domicile. It has its own efficient taxation regime and enjoys an extensive network of double-taxation agreements with more than seventy countries from Australia to the USA. Malta is a corner-stone of efficient structuring options for our EU and world-wide clients and offers itself as an excellent jurisdiction for companies and individuals seeking to protect their wealth.
STM Malta has a number of internal policies regarding governance. The majority of the Firm’s business involves member directed investment portfolios. Given the relatively small size of each investment portfolio, it is not practical to incorporate sustainability risk into the consideration of investment transactions. However, we support any initiative by individual clients to take account of Sustainability Risk in their personal investment policy agreed with their adviser. We will require all new client investment advice mandates consider Sustainability Risk.
The STM Malta Occupational Retirement Scheme is currently too small for Sustainability Risk to have a material impact on the scheme. At the present time, the investment policy requires that all investments issue Sustainability Risk information. As the fund grows, STM Malta will consider further whether the scheme should take a more active position regarding Sustainability Risk in its investment decision process.
Given that Sustainability Risk is not a factor in the investment decision process, the remuneration policy places no requirements in this regard on key employees.
