This webinar will focus on Malta's financial ecosystem taking into account the situation with COVID-19.

This IoD Malta 08:59 Club event brings together three talented speakers to understand a number of “do’s and don’ts” in the market that apply to all ecosystem players. They will provide an overview of the most critical financial ecosystem success factors and outline the impact of COVID-19.

Moderated by IoD Malta Chairman Edwin Ward, the webinar brings together all the major players outside the regulatory institutions, with speakers from leading private sector businesses, to analyse Malta’s financial ecosystem and to ask the serious question: Is it fit for purpose?

As Malta faces COVID-19 and international regulatory headwinds, can private capital be unleashed to back the innovation and rapid-scaling our economy needs? Do we have the financial ecosystem we need to develop our companies and our economy?
