About Malta

The decision to base FIMBank’s operations in Malta was the result of a study commissioned in 1994 by the Bank’s initial group of investors. The scope of this study was to establish an onshore, specialised trade finance bank in a country that has a robust regulatory framework, a respected tradition in banking, an extensive range of professional services and an efficient cost base. The availability of qualified multi-lingual staff was also a major determining factor. Of the locations that were then being considered, Malta was the one which ticked all the right boxes, and ever since the Bank’s inception, we have strived to create value and widen our economic activity on the Island, both by assisting in re-directing regional and international trade and finance flows through Malta, as well as by leveraging the Island's strategic position to attract major financial operations.
