Raising funds on Malta’s capital markets provides access to a wide range of potential investors. There are several ways for companies to raise funds on the Capital Markets, including the issuance of bonds, Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) and the launching of investment funds.
An ever-increasing popular option for companies looking to raise funds is to issue bonds. Companies may issue bonds to raise capital for a specific project or to refinance existing debt. Bond issuance can be done through private placements or public offerings, and can be structured to meet the specific needs of the issuer.
Another option for raising funds is to sell shares to the general public through and IPO. This provides companies with access to a large pool of potential investors and can increase their visibility and credibility.
Malta’s capital markets are regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA). The MFSA is responsible for supervising and regulating the activities of market participants, and ensures that market participants comply with EU regulations and maintain high standards of transparency, integrity, and stability upon listing and on an on-going basis.
