There are a number of reasons why a person may want to hold shares in a company in trust or through an authorised fiduciary. Confidentially is typically one of these reasons. Moreover, trusts and fiduciary services are often sought to preserve family-owned businesses. In other cases, they are used for medium-to-long-term planning in family offices or family estates. Trusts can also be used in certain commercial transactions. Maltese law deals with the institute of trusts in a very flexible manner. This offers a myriad of advantages to persons or entities making use of trusts.
