President of the Institute for Financial Services Practitioners (IFSP) Tonio Zarb on Friday welcomed the experienced keynote speakers hailing from financial services and political spheres who will speak at the upcoming annual conference, to be held on 7th April at The Xara Lodge in Rabat.

It will also be available online for those unable to attend in person.

“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.”

The full-day 2022 IFSP Conference is hailed as a valuable opportunity for industry practitioners to meet, network and discuss the hottest issues currently facing financial services.

A previous year’s IFSP Conference

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.

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.

The IFSP Conference 2022 will take place at The Xara Lodge and online via Zoom on 7th April 2022 between 9am and 4.30pm, with registration opening at 8am. The registration fee of €145 for IFSP members and €175 for non-members is applicable for both in-person and online attendance.
