Although the funds industry in Gibraltar has come a long way since its launch in 2005 and Gibraltar Funds, mainly private and experienced investor funds, are an important sector of the financial industry, for many professionals in the industry they are still unknown or there are certain questions that remain unanswered.
GACO and GFIA have joined forces in order to set up this training with the aim to make all the industry providers more familiar with this Gibraltar flagship product and to make sure what types of funds are available in Gibraltar, how they are regulated, how they are operated, what the legal requirements are, what risk management and oversights are embedded in Gibraltar funds, what are the specific fund documents that are created along with the corporate documents, how the PPM/POM assist you in understanding what activity you can expect on a bank account opened for a fund, what the roles of a banker and a custodian/depository are and how important they are in the fund set up.
During the seminar you will be able to ask any question you ever wanted to have answered in relation to Gibraltar funds. The speakers will demystify Gibraltar Funds and show you that they are well structured and regulated vehicles and easy to deal with, that they don't increase your risks nor are they more prone, contrary to urban legends, to money laundering or other criminal offence issues
