The Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit (FIAU) has officially relocated to new premises at Trident Park within the Birkirkara Central Business District.
The new address is Trident Park, Level 0, No.5, Triq l-Mdina, Central Business District, Birkirkara, CBD2010.
Plans to move to the new location were initially announced in 2021, after it entered a promise-to-lease agreement with Trident Park Ltd, having been selected after an evaluation process following a public call for an expression of interest in 2020.
According to its latest annual report, moving to new premises has been a strategic objective for the entity due to an ongoing recruitment process which led it to outgrow its current premises.
The new office design prioritises natural lighting and incorporates both climate control and insulation systems in order lower operational costs and minimise its carbon footprint.
Previously, the entity was based on Tower Road, Birkirkara.
