Gibraltar's Funds Industry
Gibraltar has developed over the years as being a reliable and ideal location for establishing and servicing funds. Gibraltar boasts a highly technical fund jurisdiction with experienced industry professionals, an approachable regulator and a dedicated association (Gibraltar Funds Industry Association - "GFIA").
The jurisdiction is seeing heavy fund and investment activity with the launch of the recently revamped experienced investor fund ("EIF") regulations, which is attracting plenty of redomiciliation enquiries. With an extensive range of services available including fund administrators, legal counsel, custodians, and auditors, Gibraltar is well placed to handle the influx of new funds and redomiciliations it desires from the dawn of the new EIF regulations and imminent AIFM Directive.
At present, there are over 100 funds in Gibraltar according to the regulator, the Financial Services Commission ("FSC").
