Virtual Financial Assets Service Providers and Issuers
CSA Group, through its subsidiary company CS Fintech Services Limited, is authorised under Articles 7 and 14 of the Virtual Financial Assets Act to provide VFA Agent Services to prospective issues and VFA service providers in Malta. Cryptocurrencies and DLT assets are subject to regulation in Malta, and our firm has expertise when it comes to navigating such regulatory waters. Our firm is the only VFA Agent in Malta to have successfully registered more than one whitepaper, whereas it has also represented various applicants with the MFSA for a VFA licence.
Fintech and Crowdfunding
Financial technology continues to be one of the main pioneering forces disrupting traditional financial services. CSA Group is equipped to guide clients seeking authorisation to carry out certain fintech services, as well as being able to identify specific frameworks from which such clients are able to benefit from, such as the Fintech Sandbox Regime. Malta has also recently enacted new rules which govern companies carrying out crowdfunding or operating crowdfunding platforms, and likewise, we are able to assist in setting out the requirements for such a regulatory route.
CSA Group specialises in assisting companies authorised as Investment Firms under the Investment Services Act, including but not limited to, investment advisors, brokers, custodians, market makers, and portfolio managers. From assisting new companies in submitting their application to assisting existing licence holders with their ongoing requirements, CSA Group has the necessary resources to assist such customers operating in these regulated industries.
