The Minister hosted a lunch at the Baur au Lac Hotel which was attended by some 100 Swiss based professionals in the areas of asset management, funds and insurance.

As Minister Isola pointed out to the guests, Gibraltar is perfectly situated to act as a gateway to the EU single market for funds, asset managers and financial services entities looking to market to investors and undertake business within the EU.

The Minister also touched on the importance of compliance with international laws and emphasised Gibraltar’s capacity to provide a first class service on all legal and regulatory issues in the European financial markets and beyond.

The Minister was accompanied by Gibraltar Finance Director, James Tipping and Gibraltar Finance senior executive Philip Canessa, who together with Triay & Triay attended a number of private meetings.

Triay & Triay believes that the partnership between HM Government of Gibraltar and the local industry is essential to set Gibraltar apart from many other EU jurisdictions and is particularly important to ensure the jurisdiction continues to be business-friendly and regulated in a pragmatic manner.

The Gibraltar delegation also took the opportunity to attend the Finanz’15 Conference on 4 and 5 February at Zurich’s Kongresshaus. The conference attracted some 6300 visitors and generated a substantial amount of interest in Gibraltar.

As a firm with considerable expertise in funds and asset management, Triay & Triay is well placed to discuss Gibraltar/EU regulatory matters with Swiss fund managers.
