Curmi & Partners CEO David Curmi’s approach to keeping things human lends itself well to the investment management industry and to his investment advisory role in international family offices.
“2022 will be challenging yet exciting,” says Mr Curmi when asked about his outlook for the remainder of the year.
“Investment markets have a number of headwinds to counter, including inflation, interest rate hikes, and geopolitical issues. Strategies to attract and retain quality staff will be an important driver of success, in any company,” he continues.
Mr Curmi notes that certain industry-related issues stem from Malta’s own geographical limitations.
“Beyond the fallout from the grey-listing and the distraction of an election, locally we must also face the economic challenges of a small, important dependent island – particularly when it comes to the disruption to supply chains and transportation,” the CEO adds.
“All of this when many businesses are already badly bruised by the pandemic and Government support is being phased out. It is not going to be an easy year,” Mr Curmi concludes.
