Legal, Enforcement & Policy

The Legal, Enforcement & Policy team's focus is to design, develop, advise and enforce the law in order to support and ensure that the organisation is able to carry out its supervisory functions and deter behaviour that undermines its regulatory objectives.

Enforcement

Credible deterrence is the central focus of our enforcement approach. We aim to identify problems or potential issues early on and focus on ensuring that unethical or incompetent behaviour is discouraged by making it clear that where a firm or person is contemplating taking, or carrying out, such action, they are highly likely to face real and meaningful consequences as a result.

We work with other regulators and authorities both locally and in the international environment to combat financial crime.

Policy

Our policy work focuses on the development and maintenance of an appropriate legislative and regulatory framework informed by Government policy, our supervisory and enforcement work, market changes and EU and international initiatives. The Policy Team also provides support to the authorisation, supervision and enforcement functions through the development and implementation of regulatory policy and standards which ensure the delivery of effective regulation of financial and professional services in Gibraltar. 

The Policy Team, supported by a team of legal drafters, are working closely with HM Government of Gibraltar to deliver a streamlined legislative and regulatory framework for financial and professional services in Gibraltar. To read more about the Legislative Reform Programme, click here.
