HSBC Bank Malta and EY Malta jointly organised an exclusive event on the latest European Central Bank (ECB) guidance entitled the ‘Implementation of the ECB Guidance on Leveraged Transactions’.

The purpose of this seminar was to assist corporate customers at better understanding the requirements around certain financial exposures related to the use of borrowed funds to finance assets, known as leverage.
