LONDON, January 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
In a post-Brexit world, Malta has become the smart EU destination for sound legal, fiscal and digital infrastructure for today's financial services and digital businesses.
Julie Meyer said, "Ariadne Capital has bet big on Malta and its strong infrastructure and professional resource base which can power a target €1 billion AUM investment platform such as the one we are bringing to market here from Malta to the EU."
Said Amit Pau, Ariadne Capital London MD, "We have hosted our Follow The Entrepreneur Investor Summit successfully in the UK for 6 years, but have shifted the focus of our investment activity to and from Malta to which we will invite 200 investors - VC's, Hedge Funds, Angel Investors, Pension Funds, Sovereign Wealth Funds, and Corporate Investors - to listen to the Future of Various Industries on the 9th and 10th of July 2017."
David Barry, Ariadne Capital Malta MD, said, "Malta has attracted investment professionals like myself from across the EU due to the natural advantages here. We are simply able to do what we need to do faster, more efficiently, with greater impact out of Malta."

The Follow The Entrepreneur Investor Summit Malta is encouraging its delegates to spend their summer vacation in Malta as well as attending the Investor Summit on the 9th and 10th of July.
