The Malta Independent on Sunday - - CLASSIFIEDS -

The In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants in Eng­land and Wales (ICAEW) ACA grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony was held on Wed­nes­day 24 Oc­to­ber at Radis­son Blu Re­sort. The cer­e­mony cel­e­brated the suc­cess of seven grad­u­ates and wel­comed one in to ICAEW mem­ber­ship. Speak­ers in­cluded Martin Manuzi, Europe Re­gional Direc­tor, ICAEW; David Valen­zia, Ter­ri­tory Se­nior Part­ner, PwC Malta; Wil­liam Spi­teri Bai­ley, Mal­tese In­sti­tute of Ac­coun­tants Pres­i­dent; Chris Naudi, Part­ner EY Malta and ICAEW con­tact mem­ber, and Rachel Lee Curmi, Man­ager, PwC Malta.

The ACA was in­tro­duced in Malta in 2012 with the sup­port of large ac­count­ing firms in­clud­ing the Big Four: PwC, KPMG, Deloitte and EY. To sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of the ac­coun­tancy pro­fes­sion in Malta, ICAEW and the Malta In­sti­tute of Ac­coun­tants (MIA) agreed in 2012 to col­lab­o­rate to of­fer Mal­tese qual­i­fied ac­coun­tants ac­cess the lat­est tech­ni­cal de­vel­op­ments and thought lead­er­ship, and to work on reg­u­la­tory is­sues. ICAEW now has 11 au­tho­rised train­ing em­ploy­ers in Malta.

Martin Manuzi, ICAEW Europe Re­gional Direc­tor, said: “I would like to con­grat­u­late the stu­dents who grad­u­ated to­day, their hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion has paid off. I am de­lighted with the high cal­i­bre of our grad­u­ates and en­cour­age them to con­tinue on the road to be­com­ing char­tered ac­coun­tants, they will all be a huge as­set to the pro­fes­sion.

“We are very sup­port­ive of ac­coun­tancy in Malta and we will con­tinue to sup­port our mem­ber­ship and the next gen­er­a­tion of char­tered ac­coun­tants here. Our mem­bers in Malta build trust be­tween busi­nesses and so­ci­ety, play­ing a vi­tal role in in­creas­ing trust and en­abling growth.”

The ACA is one of the most ad­vanced learn­ing and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes avail­able, and is a recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tion world­wide – 98 of the world’s 100 global lead­ing brands em­ploy an ICAEW Char­tered Ac­coun­tant. In 2017, over 27,000 stu­dents were study­ing for the ACA, and 8,437 stu­dents joined ICAEW, which is the high­est ever fig­ure.
