The Central Bank of Malta was established by the Central Bank of Malta Act on 17 April 1968. On 1 May 2004, the Bank joined the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) and on 1 January 2008, it became part of the Eurosystem.
FCM Bank is headquartered in Malta and has held a Maltese banking licence since 2010. The bank is regulated and supervised by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) and participates in Malta’s Depositor Compensation Scheme. FCM Bank was acquired by the SAB Group in November 2017.
Izola Bank gained its banking licence in 1994 and has been heavily involved in Van Marcke Group’s treasury operations, particularly in the areas of cash and liquidity management, as well as lending and factoring. As a natural evolution to this, the Bank also started to offer the Group’s clients niche products with exclusive benefits.
The Bank is an authorised currency dealer and a financial intermediary on the Malta Stock Exchange, as well as a member of the Depositor Compensation Scheme and the Investor Compensation Scheme.
