Nemea: a European bank
Nemea Bank is EU-regulated as a banking and investment services provider by the MFSA - Malta Financial Services Authority (Registration Number: C 45026), which is the single regulator for financial services activities in Malta.
Nemea Bank offers its full range of banking and investment services to all the 31 EU/EEA countries. It is authorised to do so by virtue of the European Union’s “single passport” policy, a system which allows financial services operators legally established in one Member State to establish and provide their services in all other Member States.
