Cross-industry fintech and blockchain sector players discussed the current and future developments, while addressing the key trends and challenges in each realm, during the “Unleashing Innovation in Fintech” summit held on 17-18 October in Amsterdam, according to a press statement sent to Malta. The event was sponsored by FinanceMalta.
The event featured a panel of FinanceMalta members sharing their views and Malta’s strategy in this area. FinanceMalta is a non-profit public-private initiative that was set up to promote Malta as an international business and financial centre within in and out of Malta.
FinanceMalta says it played a “prominent role” at the summit by hosting the two-day event’s first panel discussion: “Putting DLT and Legal on the same page”. FinanceMalta also had an exhibition stand throughout the summit.
“We are proud to have played an important role in this event in Amsterdam. Throughout the year, FinanceMalta promotes Malta’s thought-leadership and experience in various financial services forums, including the areas of Fintech and Blockchain. Through such FinanceMalta-sponsored events, our members can gain exposure, share their views and connect effectively with other players from all around the world,” said Ivan Grech, Chief Operations Officer of FinanceMalta.
“It was an informative panel session about bringing together DLT and Legal on the same page, whilst focusing on Malta as a jurisdiction for such innovation,” he added.
FinanceMalta works on bringing together and harnessing the resources of the industry and government to ensure Malta maintains a modern and effective legal, regulatory and fiscal framework in which the “financial services sector can continue to grow and prosper”.
