The Maltese operation, Dolfin Asset Services Ltd, of London-based Dolfin has become a member of the Malta Stock Exchange (MSE).
The firm’s membership means that Dolfin’s traders in Malta and its clients have direct access to Malta’s securities market, both in bonds and equities.
Dolfin already provides its international clients with UK investor visa solutions and plans to offer them a similar service for Malta.
Membership of the MSE also gives Dolfin access to the Maltese central security depository and increases its efficiency by enabling trading directly through the MSE without going through an intermediary, the group said.
Dolfin secured its Malta custody and depository licence earlier this year making it the first provider on the island to offer access to depositary facilities with London-based custody.
The membership follows the recent growth in private and institutional and client numbers in the first half of 2018 as it opened a new Malta office in Valetta.
Dolfin was founded in London in 2013. It offers custody, execution and asset management to private clients, financial advisers and institutional investors.
