I am a qualified accountant and hold an auditor’s licence. I own the Portman International group. Building on my earlier positions as CFO of the Vodafone subsidiary in Malta and as Operations Director of a diversified Maltese group of companies, I launched into financial services by taking over the management in Malta of Portman International in 1997.

Over the years, I have travelled extensively across Europe, meeting clients and discussing cross-border activities and international tax planning. In so doing, I developed corporate and tax expertise in the UK, Malta and Ireland assisting clients with their tax structuring. My professional work takes me into the regulated areas of accounting, audit, tax advice, payment services as well as corporate services and fiduciary & trustee services. This led me to become well versed in the complexities related to statutory and tax compliance.

What is apparent to me as I meet our international client base is that people have objectives and need solutions, and – as a service provider – nothing tops assisting and guiding clients to achieve their goals. Naturally, being professionally competent helps! This understanding induced me to transfer these principles to my management team, and now these attitudes are imprinted into Portman International’s DNA and culture.

In recent years, I have diversified my activities into payment services via MistralPay, an innovative venture that offers merchants more online payment options with one single integration. Another business I manage is Portman International Properties, a complementary real estate agency arm that has added much value to our financial services company. The aim is to enable us to provide comprehensive solutions to clients seeking to relocate to Malta.
