Gibraltar Financial Services Commission

The Gibraltar Financial Services Commission regulates the financial services industry in Gibraltar.

Our aim is to protect consumers, enhance the reputation of Gibraltar as a quality financial services centre and promote good business.

The GFSC supervises a broad range of firms including: auditors, banks, company managers, e-money institutions, professional trustees, payment services providers, funds and fund service providers, insurance companies, managers and intermediaries, investment firms, and insolvency practitioners(as from late 2014). Firms that wish to do business in or from within Gibraltar must meet our standards and criteria both at application stage and on an on-going basis. Our supervisory work focuses primarily on the way firms are operated and governed and the identification of risks to consumers and the reputation of the jurisdiction more generally.

The GFSC published its Strategic Plan on the 14th October 2014. It is imperative that we continuously improve and focus our resources on enhancing and strengthening our approach. The Strategic Plan sets out our programme to deliver effective regulation.

We have made some changes to our website which we hope will assist you in understanding the GFSC’s role and approach. We also want to ensure that any queries you have are dealt with swiftly. In order to support this, each industry has a senior member of staff assigned as a sector lead. You should contact this person for any query relating to the sector you are interested in. You can find out more about the sector lead and how to contact them by clicking on the sectors above.
