GFIA Chairman appointment

07.07.2020 News

On July 7th 2020, Jay Gomez was appointed Chairman of the GFIA Gibraltar Funds and Investments Association (GFIA), replacing his predecessor James Lasry, who has been on the executive holding senior positions for the last 10 years.

The Gibraltar Funds and Investments Association (GFIA) held its Annual General Meeting via Zoom on the previously mentioned date. The meeting began with an address by The Hon Albert Isola, Minister for Digital and Financial Services who commented on the hard work and achievements of the Association this year and welcomed the inclusive nature of the committee.

Jay Gomez was called to the Bar in England and Wales and Gibraltar in 2010 and is a Director of the Financial Services team at Triay. He has developed a strong reputation as an expert in the financial services sector and regularly advises prospective funds, investment managers, insurance companies and banks on licensing requirements and regulatory, operational, passporting and distribution matters. He is recognised by Legal 500 as a “Rising Star” in this sector. Jay was instrumental to establishing the FinTech team as one of the most highly regarded teams in Gibraltar.

Incoming Chairman Jay Gomez (Jnr) commented “oOn behalf of the Executive Committee and our members, I would like to take this opportunity to thank James Lasry for his time as Chairman. During his tenure GFIA has gone from strength to strength, and his leadership in the build-up to Brexit and during the Covid-19 pandemic has been unmeasurable. I’m delighted that James will continue to be as involved as ever with GFIA as Deputy Chairman and his role on the EIF Director Committee.”

GFIA (Gibraltar Funds & Investments Association) is a non-profit organization. It was formed in 1996 under the original name GASIM (Gibraltar Association of Stockbrokers and Investment Managers) which was renamed in 2009 to include Fund Managers. GFIA’s membership today is comprised of Stockbrokers, Law Firms, Banks, Audit Firms, Investment Managers, Fund Managers & Administrators as well as individuals involved in the financial sector in Gibraltar.

The Executive Committee is committed to representing the interests of stakeholders in the Gibraltar funds and investment industry. GFIA will continue its close coordination with the Government and the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission, as well as provide its members with a full program of marketing, technical and training related events in what promises to be a busy year for the industry.
