The Gibraltar Funds & Investments Association (GFIA) Annual Gala Dinner took place last week. The event was extremely well attended as usual but this time around the feeling of uncertainty, present at this event the last few years, was replaced by one of renewed optimism and a sense that the industry, if it continues working together, has all the ingredients to prosper in a post-Brexit era.
In his usual eloquent manner, Minister for Digital and Financial Services, Albert Isola, gave the opening speech at GFIA’s Annual Gala Dinner. He reiterated that Gibraltar is open for business and focused on the unique advantage that Gibraltar is the only jurisdiction with a direct access to the UK, post-Brexit. With the two tax treaties with the UK and Spain in place, and many others in the pipeline, Gibraltar will also be well positioned for international business.
