This section contains general descriptions of the different areas that, together, make up the financial sector in Malta. The additional information included with the descriptions is intended to enable all categories of students and other job seekers to familiarise themselves with the various career providers and the variety of job possibilities that the finance sector offers. It is of course recommended that more specific information is sought by utilising to the fullest all the links provided in this section.

It is also worth noting that in real life there are situations where licensed institutions operate simultaneously in the banking, investment services and insurance sectors. This trend follows the global one in which financial services products of different natures are offered in an integrated manner by financial services groups of companies. This could lead to situations where, for example, one can be employed in a bank but ends up working in insurance or investment services rather than banking as such.
