Welcome to what we anticipate will be one of Europe’s premier
Governance, Risk and Compliance Summits

About the Event

There is no doubt there have been significant developments in the regulatory frameworks that address governance, risk and compliance. The environment and challenges faced by all practitioners in the financial services sector and beyond have become much more complex, demanding and onerous. The Malta Stock Exchange is conscious of the challenges faced by the industry and will be organizing this first ever full day Summit on the subject. This will include a number of recognised international speakers, keynote addresses by leading practitioners and as well as panel sessions involving industry specialists. This conference is aimed at corporate executives, regulators and financial industry practitioners who will come together to present, discuss and debate emerging trends within the governance, risk and compliance sectors.
