Control and Supervision
Malta is a member of the eurozone and, like all member states, must have a regulator overseeing the financial and capital markets. Moreover, Malta's regulator, the MFSA, falls directly under the ECB, which is responsible for the entire eurozone market and must therefore respect the same regulations as central banks in Germany, Austria or any other country.
MFSA - Malta Financial Services Authority
The Maltese Financial Services Authority (MFSA), like the Deutsche Bundesbank, is the single regulator of financial services in Malta. The MFSA regulates banking, financial institutions, payment institutions, insurance companies and insurance intermediaries, investment services companies and collective investment schemes, securities markets, etc.
ECB - European Central Bank
FCM Bank Limited is also controlled by the European Central Bank. FCM Bank Limited is also a member of the deposit insurance scheme (Deposit Compensation Scheme) in Malta, which allows a further development within the European Union through acquisition of a bank in the euro area, which holds a European banking license.
