We promote best practice, professional integrity and education to our members. Our members help families plan for their futures: from drafting a will or advising family businesses, to helping international families and protecting vulnerable family 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 Malta

STEP's Malta branch was founded in 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.

I am writing to recommend the Corporate Services of CC. I have been working closely with them for over a year now to assist in all aspects of my business. Their knowledge and attention to detail have been a big part of the successful launch of my company. I feel confident in recommeding CC's services. They are not only thorough, but also easy to work with.

I approached Chetcuti Cauchi with the objective of establishing a company in order to provide public health information management services to collaborators throughout the European Union. From my first interaction with them through phone discussions and emails to ongoing communications and a visit to their offices in Valletta, I have been extremely pleased with their professionalism, competence, and timeliness. They have been very attentive to the specific needs of my company’s collaborations and have provided much-valued guidance and support both in establishing the company and in its ongoing operations. I am very satisfied with the work so far, and look forward to more successful interactions in the future.
