There’s some uncertainty where the name ‘Malta’ comes from. Some believe it’s from the ancient Greeks who called the island Μελίτη (Melitē) or “honey-sweet" because of its historic honey production. While others attribute the origin of the name to the Phoenician word Maleth meaning "a haven" in reference to Malta's many bays and coves. Either way, both words are fitting for this sweet Mediterranean paradise. Historically, Malta was a naval stronghold due to its strategic positioning. Today, Malta is a hot-spot for tourism and enjoys a stable and advanced economy.

The Maltese Individual Investor Program offers the option to invest in real estate, thus ensuring the recoverability of those funds after the required five year holding period. The Maltese property market is correcting itself after the global financial downturn, which creates a strong opportunity for investors. The amount of new properties added to the Maltese real estate market each year has been declining significantly since 2009. This decline stabilized the real estate market, and prices have now started to pick up because demand has also risen, meaning now is an excellent time to make an investment in real estate in this stunning Mediterranean oasis.
