✅ Josef Camilleri emphasises that the well-being of people in retirement depends on how well they are prepared for it.
→ Camilleri, the current head of products and distribution at HSBC Life Assurance (Malta) Ltd., points out that the ...current state pension in Malta might not sustain one's present-day lifestyle.

→ Upon retirement, the units are sold at the current bid price, allowing regular withdrawals with an option for a lump sum.

✅ Individuals saving for retirement in Malta can benefit from a tax credit of up to €750 yearly.

→ Some providers opt for positive allocation rates, therefore boosting investments by increasing the amount that goes directly into one's retirement savings.
