The first ever edition of Malta Invest has officially hit the shelves, featuring extensive overviews of one economic sector after another and providing comprehensive information on the assistance, aid, and benefits available to all potential investors in Malta.
Produced, published, and owned by Content House Group, one of Malta’s largest media organisations in the online and print sectors, Malta Invest is the first-ever comprehensive international investment guide focusing on Malta as a destination.
Malta Invest provides those who are keen to explore what Malta has to offer with frank and valuable feedback from people who have invested or aided investment in Malta, and with practical information on investment routes and possibilities that is, to date, scattered across different sites and provided by different entities and agencies – public and private – depending on the sector or area of responsibility.
The brand was developed to address this gap by bringing together a wealth of information tackling all the fields relevant to businesses as well as to the individual seeking to invest in Malta.
“We also picked the brains of key stakeholders who share valuable insights gained from their experience of working in or using Malta as an investment hub and business destination across the varied sectors,” says Robert Louis Fenech, editor of the publication.
“Industry leaders, major investors, and relevant state entities have all contributed to this work by sharing their insight into what inbound investors may expect – and why choosing Malta pays off. We trust that Malta Invest will prove to be a useful guide to this fast-growing, future-facing island nation.”
The new publication starts by answering the question, ‘Why Malta?’, delving into the country’s economic history, legal system, access to finance, infrastructure, and more, before providing readers with all the essential information they require to start a business – from the company registration process to the assistance offered by entities like Malta Enterprise.
Manufacturing, financial services, residency, real estate, gaming, tourism, and the aviation and maritime industries are analysed in turn to present prospective investors with the information they need to make their investment decisions.
Malta Invest is distributed in places that matter through a global distribution partner, landing in strategic places in major cities – London, Paris, Geneva, Frankfurt, Zurich, Paris, Dubai, Brussels, and Valletta, at leading investment banks, corporate firms, business-oriented hotels, private members clubs, embassies, first and business class airline lounges, and private jet centres. Over and above this global reach, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade is also distributing copies of Malta Invest in a number of key Malta missions around the world.
Marie Claire Camilleri, Head of Corporate Sales and Business Development, expressed her satisfaction that major players in the market and in Malta’s economy have backed this ambitious project which is unique in at least two ways: “First of all, there was no single source of information that provides such a wide perspective on investing in Malta, from acquiring property to residency schemes to aviation and manufacturing; secondly, our global distribution in places that matter with key decision makers is really a critical success factor. As a company we’re very proud of this product, and we are already receiving enquiries by big players in our economy for the 2024 edition, which will be launched in November of next year.”
