Gibraltar is a highly regulated jurisdiction and a full member of the European Union. Gibraltar provides access to all the European Union's financial services markets coupled with the benefits of a Gibraltar based regulatory regime. In addition, the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission has received a series of ringing endorsements from international regulatory bodies enabling Gibraltar to fulfil all international and EU wide directives with regard to financial services and other matters such as money laundering.
The Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (FSC)
Gibraltar observes high standards of supervision and financial regulation. The Gibraltar FSC is the regulatory authority for all financial services providers operating in and from Gibraltar. All financial services providers, both companies and individuals (including where the latter act as directors of client companies), are required to be licensed and subject to regular inspection by the FSC.
