Innovation

MAML believes in the concept of innovation as the process for creating new ideas and turning them into new business value; in particular we believe in permanent innovation.

Permanent innovation contrasts with random, intermittent, or one-shot innovation processes, none of which are sufficient for today’s markets, and none of which are the basis for the excellence we aspire to.

With this in mind, MAML has undertaken significant proprietary research and development in addition to collaborating with selected international partners, with a view towards developing in-house tailored solutions, in order to ensure the delivery of value adding investment services. The unique nature and added value generated by MAML does not depend on “revolutionary” discoveries, but on our ability to combine, aggregate and modify existing technologies and/or techniques in an innovative manner to create new or update already existing solutions.

Considering the challenges in the Financial Services industry and in order to create new market space and minimise competition pressures in those markets in which it chooses to compete, MAML is also one of the pioneers for the protection of Intellectual Property (IP) in the Investment Industry and is very active in shaping evolving market best practice in this area.

Traditionally companies generate innovation internally through their own creative efforts. However, this has not always proved sufficient to sustain competitive advantage. Therefore, MAML leverages on an open network of collaborators in its research and development process.

Registration of Innovative Processes as Trademarks

The company has decided to register as trademarks, innovative processes or other unique ideas in order to assign to them a proper differentiation compared to the common practice available among competitors.

A trade mark creates an official record of your rights as owner of a particular trade mark and makes it easier to prevent others from using it.

The policy of protection implemented by MAML plays a strong strategic role as it ensures an increase in the intrinsic value of the company through the protection of its own know how.
