About Dr. Manfred Galdes

Until two years ago Manfred held the position of Director of the FIAU, Malta’s financial intelligence unit. During his eight-year tenure he acted as the operational head of the FIAU, which besides being the country’s FIU is also the body responsible for the supervision of all obliged entities (both financial entities and DNFBPs) under Maltese law. He also previously held the position of Manager, Legal and International Affairs Unit at the Malta Financial Services Authority, the single regulator responsible for the supervision of all banks, financial institutions and other entities providing financial services operating in or from Malta.

During his tenure at the FIAU, Manfred spearheaded the development of an effective risk-based supervisory framework and dedicated himself to refining Malta’s capabilities in fighting financial crime both through his efforts within the FIAU but also through his involvement in other high-level domestic committees. He was also entrusted with the co-ordination of Malta’s first AML/CFT national risk assessment.

Over the years he represented Malta on international bodies and expert groups such as the EU Expert Group on the Prevention of Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism, the EU FIUs Platform and the Egmont Group. He was also a member of Malta’s delegation to MONEYVAL for several years and Malta’s delegation to the Conference of the Parties set up for the purpose of assessing adherence to the Council of Europe Convention on Laundering, Search, Seizure and Confiscation of the Proceeds from Crime and on the Financing of Terrorism (CETS no°198) for two years.

In September 2016 Manfred joined the ARQ Group, a multi-disciplinary professional firm, as Managing Director of ARQ Risk & Compliance, leading a team of professionals providing specialist advisory and support services to private and public entities in the field of financial crime compliance. He is also a partner of Fenech Farrugia Fiott Legal, a Malta-based law firm with offices in Valletta and Birkirkara.

Today he advises a number of banks, financial institutions and top-tier gaming companies and assists them with strengthening their compliance structures and systems. He also leads a team of international experts that provide advisory services to governments and public institutions involved in the prevention, supervision, detection and investigation of financial crime.

In July 2018 Manfred was appointed Chairman of the ARQ Group.
