Spectrum’s Investment License in Malta

At Spectrum we always keep up with the constantly evolving regulatory dynamic which has become a dominant feature of the financial services industry over recent years (decades in fact). This is of vital importance to give our clients peace of mind and to allow us to continue delivering comprehensive and fully compliant investment solutions in Malta and across Europe.

The latest measure taken to bolster our range of services was obtaining a MiFID investment license from the Malta Financial Services Authority. This was a lengthy but worthwhile exercise to ensure that our clients, throughout the EU, continue to benefit from our extensive investment experience, from initial advice recommendations through to ongoing monitoring and support.

The use of this license has not only been limited to the countries where Spectrum is physically present (Spain, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Portugal and Malta) but also to other European jurisdictions, meaning Spectrum is now able to reach and service a much wider audience than before.

From lump sum investments to regular savings, pensions (QROPS and SIPPs), portfolio reviews and investment management guidance, we can engage with clients and identify the most appropriate solutions for their circumstances. In fact, many expats across the EU with QROPS pensions have been left without an adviser due to recent regulatory changes requiring that a MiFID-licensed adviser is appointed. Helping people manage their QROPS is a key part of our business, so we wanted to ensure that we could continue to assist these clients, both existing clients and those who be looking for an adviser. Therefore, being MiFID compliant is not only good news for us but will also give our clientele peace of mind that we will be here for them for the long haul.

If you would like to discuss your own situation and explore options for protecting your long-term financial security, feel free to reach out to us. All initial meetings are free of charge and do not hold any obligation to proceed.

The Spectrum IFA Group Limited is licensed to provide investment services, under the Investment Services Act, by the Malta Financial Services Authority.
