Gibraltar’s Minister of Commerce, The Hon Albert Isola, was in London for a series of financial services meetings and was the keynote speaker at a seminar hosted by Deloitte at their London Academy on Wednesday 31 January 2018 entitled “The future direction for Gibraltar as an insurance hub”.
The seminar reviewed the latest developments in Gibraltar and evaluated how Gibraltar was positioning itself to benefit from changes in the wider insurance sector. Minister Isola provided an overview of Gibraltar’s financial services industry, the Brexit discussions with the United Kingdom Government and Gibraltar’s expanding FinTech business sector. Minister Isola also emphasized the fact that Gibraltar will continue to have financial services passporting rights into the UK post Brexit. He was accompanied by James Tipping, CEO Gibraltar Finance and Michael Ashton, Senior Executive Gibraltar Finance who also presented at the Deloitte Seminar.
Minister Isola told B2B “The seminar was extremely well received, and I am keen to repeat this format across a range of topics this year. The ability to support events that are hosted by professional services firms in the City of London or in other major financial centres is compelling. It gives us the opportunity to present to their clients who in many cases will not know Gibraltar well or our key industries and core strengths.”
