Malta makes an attractive location for the establishment of trusts, thanks to its cutting edge Trust law and high professional standards. In terms of Maltese law, according to Article 3 of the Trust and Trustees Act, Chapter 331 of the laws of Malta, a Trust exists where a person or persons (the trustee) holds, as owner, or has vested in them property under an obligation to deal with that property for the benefit of persons (the beneficiaries) whether or not yet ascertained or in existence, or for a charitable purpose.
As a professional trustee, Atom Trustees Ltd (ATOM) is authorised by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) to act as trustee. ATOM adheres to the standards required under the Trusts and Trustees Act, other related legislation, as well as to best practice within the industry. The MFSA has also issued a code of conduct providing guidance to trustees, which ATOM has adhered to. ATOM is committed to exercising its fiduciary duties prudently and competently, subject to the provisions of the Trusts and Trustees Act and the terms of the Trust instrument. ATOM will consider the rights of the settlor and all beneficiaries when making decisions affecting the administration of the Trust.
