We promote best practice, professional integrity and education to our members.

STEP has more than 20,000 members from across 95 countries. Members of STEP Malta branch/chapter enjoy professional development training and opportunities to network at a local level.
STEP’s Malta branch was foundedin October 2007 on the instigation of Michael Woolf, Richard Pease and Professor Bannister, who believed that Malta as a Financial Services center would benefit from a STEP Branch. Today STEP’s Malta branch boasts a membership of over 100 members and a CPD calendar packed with a range of monthly seminars supported by local firms. STEP Malta has become the voice of the local fiduciary and estate planning professions. We are taking an active role even at European and international levels on matters of significance, such as the proposed introduction of a Register of Beneficial Owners. The International Friends of Malta now folow STEP Malta’s social media channels on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to stay abreast of local activities and the work of the Malta branch.
