MARSP is the single organisation combining the experience, practical information and coordination of all licensed retirement scheme administrators in Malta. The association was set up in 2010, following the establishment of a number of pensions scheme administrators and trustees in Malta, initially focusing on the international pensions market, with an emphasis on British expatriates. Today, the association is primarily concerned with regulation, taxation and industry best practice.
