“Our mission is to build long term personal relationships with our clients
by preserving our reputation and integrity in the market”
Rizzo, Farrugia & Co. (Stockbrokers) Ltd (“RFC”) was set up in September 1991. It holds a category 3 investment services licence issued by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) regulating the provision of stockbroking, investment advisory, portfolio management and nominee services. It is authorized to hold and/or control client money and assets and to trade on own account in the provision of these services.
Additionally, RFC is authorised to act as an Asset Manager under the Special Funds (Regulation) Act 2002 (SFA), which currently regulates pension schemes in Malta. Through this licence, the Company is authorised to provide investment services to a Retirement Scheme or Fund which is duly registered under the SFA, including advising on, and management of, the investment of all or any of the Retirement Scheme’s assets.
RFC is one of the founder members of the Malta Stock Exchange and commands the largest market share in trading of locally listed equity. In terms of international stockbroking, the company has arrangements in place with third party correspondents who enable us to deal as agents in global bonds, shares, ETF’s and selective funds in almost all major currencies.
The company’s owners and executive management bring over thirty-five years’ experience to the market, sharing knowledge and expertise with a continuously growing client base consisting of retail, corporate, high net worth and institutional investors. Prior to 1991, investment consultancy services were offered through a sister company that had been formed in 1975.
The executive management team ensure that long term client relationships are built by applying optimal standards at all times. We believe that our experience, reliability and confidential approach place us at the forefront of the local investment services industry and make us indeed, “Your Investment Consultants”. We have a genuine personal interest in clients’ well being and always place clients’ interests first. The executive management team is backed by a dedicated and loyal team of a further 15 individuals having different levels of competence and experience.
Our experience and knowledge of the local capital market is partly attributable to the successful 10-year advisory agreement between 1996 and 2006 to Insight Investment Management of London (previously Rothschilds) in the advisory portfolio management of Malta’s largest collective investment schemes.
RFC has also assisted a number of companies in their public offerings and private placements including acting as adviser to HSBC Bank Malta plc, Malta International Airport plc, FIMBank plc, MaltaPost plc and Bank of Valletta plc amongst others.
RFC is today highly regarded and well respected in the industry commanding excellent relations with the regulators and most industry professionals. We recognize that the future success of our business depends upon creating and maintaining these excellent long-term relations. From our experience to date, this depends on providing a consistent, efficient, honest and reliable level of service at all times.
