On 30th September, the Malta Stock Exchange held a morning bell ringing ceremony as part of World Investor Week 2019, a global, week-long campaign aiming to promote the importance of financial literacy. The event is supported by the World Federation of Exchanges and is an occasion for IOSCO members to highlight various initiatives of securities regulators in raising awareness about the importance of investor education and protection. Members across six continents will gather throughout the course of this week to provide a range of activities, such as launching investor-focused communications and services, organising workshops and conferences, and conducting local campaigns in their own jurisdictions. Dr. Nicholas Curmi, head of GANADO Advocates’ capital markets practice, attended the event.
