Licensed Maltese financial institution
acquiring is the trading name of Trust Payments (MALTA) Limited, a Financial Institution licensed by the Malta Financial Services Authority(“MFSA”). Until 2020, the brand and the platform have been operated by Secure Trading Financial Services Limited.
The CEO of the company is Steve Grech (LinkedIn), who is also the Chairman of the Financial Institutions Malta Association. The company is part of the Trust Payments Group (see profile here).
We have discovered acquiring as a partner of the licensed Estonian crypto payment processor Woodstock. This in turn has participated in scams as a facilitator.
Nevertheless, we put acquiring or MFSA-regulated Trust Payments (Malta) Ltd on our “Green Compliance Light” list.
