Malta’s FIAU Publishes “Intelligence Factsheet” of STRs



Reading Time: < 1 minute


The Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit (FIAU) of Malta has published its “intelligence factsheet” which provides an overview of “suspicious transaction reports” (STRs) submitted by Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) licensees in 2019.

FIAU reported a total of 1445 STRs from 210 MGA licenced operators during 2019, continuing its 100% rise in suspicious transactions registered by its “CASPAR monitoring system” year-on-year trend.

A breakdown of results saw 32% (457 cases) of the total STRs submitted by three companies and a further 35% (498 cases) registered by another five licenced operators, with 72 organisations submitting the remaining 33% (approximately 486) of the STRs.

FIAU reported 741 STR cases related to online gambling for 2020, under which the enforcement unit continues to broaden its CASPAR system’s monitoring capability.

In its factsheet statement the FIAU detailed: “In most of the cases, the FIAU considers it more appropriate to send a spontaneous intelligence report to foreign FIUs rather than to trigger an investigation in Malta on the basis of STRs received from the remote gaming entities.

“Although the FIAU does not open its own in-depth analysis in these cases, the majority result in further dissemination to its foreign counterparts. As a result, information received through these submissions accounted for 35 percent of the total spontaneous intelligence reports shared with foreign FIUs in 2019.”

  • Challengermode makes dual appointments with Philip Hübner promoted to CBDO and Dan-Alp Lindberg joining as CFO 

Leading esports platform Challengermode today announced the appointment of Dan-Alp Lindberg as Chief Financial Officer and the promotion of Philip Hübner to Chief Business Development Officer. The hires follow a substantial period of growth and a $12 million investment round led by eWTP Innovation Fund, the global investment arm of the Alibaba Group, Telia Ventures and Swedish soccer legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Lindberg joins as Chief Financial Officer, where he will be responsible for the company’s revenue growth and profitability while managing risks and compliance in order to facilitate Challengermode’s continued high-growth journey. He has over 15 years of management experience at both large companies and scale-ups , including roles at IKEA as well as creative agency and entertainment company B-Reel. Linberg’s deep knowledge of finance, operations, risk and analytics makes him a valuable asset to Challengermode given its position in the constantly evolving world of esports.

“I’ve always been keen to help grow esports as an industry, even back when I was a competitor – so I am excited to be bringing that accumulated experience to my new role as CBDO” comments Philip Hübner Chief Business Development Officer at Challengermode. “For all its recent success, the esports industry is still relatively young, and is still in a process of change.

Dan-Alp Lindberg, Chief Financial Officer at Challengermode, said: “I am super excited to step into the role of CFO at Challengermode and look forward to continuing to roll out our esports platform internationally. I truly believe the team and this platform has incredible potential to accelerate the growth of esports, harness the space’s commercial potential, facilitate new business models and establish new revenue streams along the way.”
