Regulatory & Compliance Services in Malta

Alter Domus, both globally and locally, has been building a robust team to support our clients with the growing list of regulatory challenges. We continue to support our clients with specific ad hoc assignments which will span for a couple of weeks or months (depending on the size of the engagement) or long term assignments and mandates were our role will be more of a permanent nature.

Alongside our people we have been enhancing the technology experience for our clients, employees and other stake holders through more digitalised processes and the partnering with specialist technology providers such as Diligent.


Regulatory Reporting

Alter Domus provides a variety of services relating to regulatory reporting among which there are the Annex IV and Annex V reporting for funds, FATCA reporting, CRS reporting, FINREP, AIFM related reports and Central Bank reporting. It also has the capacity to assist its customers in navigating new regulatory matters and has the in-house competence to assist its customers with any remedial actions required after regulatory visits have been carried out.

Alter Domus also assists clients with reporting relevant information in relation to Trusts via TUBOR online platform as well as in relation to Beneficial Owners in relation to companies and partnerships.

Operational Change Management & Leveraging Regulatory Data

Alter Domus can provide operational change management advice with the aim of optimising the clients’ processes and managing change to ensure control over set requirements.
It has the capacity to review budgets and business models accordingly. Alter Domus also has the expertise to assist with the re-organisation of data and processes and the optimisation of the use of capital.

Alter Domus is in a position to provide such services through an extensive in-house experience in providing regulatory support to Bank and Asset Management companies, together with expertise in transforming the way entities manage information.

Corporate Governance

This has also been a key part of our offering. Due to increased ongoing requirements for substance and local corporate governance we have expanded our team of senior management to support our clients better in this aspect by giving them the opportunity to engage with specialist board members who have many years of experience. We also understand that some of our clients may require specialist support at the level of the board which is not related to finance and/or regulatory matters. We have therefore engaged with a selected number of non-executive board members who are not employed by Alter Domus but who can offer their services to our clients. Such non-executive board members have been intentionally selected to cover areas that our clients have asked us from time to time such as specialist support in Intellectual Property, Maritime and Logistics, Real Estate, Technology, etc...


Compliance Officer and MLRO Roles

Regulated companies need to ensure that they have proper controls in place. Alter Domus Malta can act as a Compliance Officer and/or MLRO on client companies thereby ensuring that all the required policies and procedures are in place, backed up by the necessary training which should be provided to staff members. Alter Domus Malta has the experience to guide clients on certain registers and manuals which need to be kept and presented to the Board of Directors from time to time. Appropriate Compliance Monitoring Plans for customers can be drawn up and followed through. We can also provide in-house expertise on anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing measures.


As a step towards implementing developments in technology within its operations, Alter Domus is rolling out a fully integrated service through a board portal solution which shall enhance the experience of client meetings.
