Malta offers the possibility of significant tax benefits to Special Vehicles (SVs). Under Maltese law, Originators have special benefits. There is no onus on Originators to be authorised and/or licensed, and no restrictions on the identity of the Originator. They can hold equity stakes in the SV, and enjoy bankruptcy remoteness for the SV.
Particularly attractive is the lack of limitation on what assets may be securitised, as long as it is an asset. The transactions or financial instruments issued by an SV need to be over €1,000,000. SVs have many other benefits and protections under Maltese law that are highly attractive to any party intending to undertake such a transaction.
