The funds sector is currently one of the fastest growing areas of the financial services industry in Gibraltar. A number of reputable fund managers and administrators are now established in Gibraltar, servicing both funds domiciled in Gibraltar as well as other jurisdictions.
Most of the funds set up in Gibraltar are established as Experienced Investor Funds pursuant to the Financial Services (Experienced Investor Funds) Regulations 2005. These regulations allow experienced investors to establish funds in Gibraltar without going through the normal rigorous licensing process for a fund. Provided the fund and investors satisfy certain criteria, the regulation of the fund is more relaxed and less costly. Such funds are also currently exempt from any taxation on profits.
We work with other Member Firms of the BDO network to provide assurance and other advisory services to a wide range of funds, both domiciled in Gibraltar as well as other reputable jurisdictions.
