Finance expert Margherita Privitera has joined the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) as Head of Risk Management.

Ms Privitera’s appointment follows a 27-year tenure at HSBC Malta, which came to a conclusion earlier this month. She revealed her new role on social media just yesterday.

Established in 2002, the MFSA is the single regulator for financial services in Malta. Following its establishment, the authority took over supervisory functions previously carried out by the Central Bank of Malta, the Malta Stock Exchange, and the Malta Financial Services Centre.

Ms Privitera’s career in finance spans almost three decades, having started out as a Teller at HSBC Malta back in 1995.

Over the following 18 years, she worked her way up within the bank’s Branch Network and Contact Centre, having been appointed Branch and Contact Centre Team Manager.

In 2013, Ms Privitera was promoted to Documentation and Change Control Manager within the Contact Centre and, two years after that, she was once again promoted to Head of Insurance Operations and Business Standards.

In 2017, Ms Privitera was appointed International Risk Intelligence Manager – a position which she held for just under a year before being promoted to Head of FCR and KYC Operations.

A year after that, Ms Privitera was instated as the bank’s Head of Distribution Risk. She served in said capacity for around three years before joining MFSA.
