With a unique geographical
and legal situation, Gibraltar has developed an efficient, modern and well
regulated financial center. Financial services are an important sector
of the Gibraltar economy and the Finance Centre, established by Government
is charged with the marketing and promotion of financial services.
The Financial Services Commission, established in 1989 as an independent statutory
body, goes further by matching UK standards in financial regulation and supervision.
Supporting this activity locally are a number of lawyers, accountants, banks and
licenced company and trust managers. Gibraltar has a financial and commercial infrastructure to meet the needs of new
enterprises that are seeking a low cost operation based in Europe.
