Gibraltar Stock Exchange: Europe's Most Competitive And Fastest Gateway SolutionVW Staff
The Gibraltar Stock Exchange (GSX) is Europe’s newest stock exchange. With a focus on reputation, regulation and speed to market, GSX’s unique listing solutions can offer:
- A European gateway solution for non-EU and EU alternative fund managers using securitization providing promotion rights, prospectus passporting and UCITS eligibility
- Bond issues for SMEs at competitive rates
- Reinsurance solutions using Securitization (ILS, Cat-bonds)
With the EU representing 25% of global wealth, many global fund managers, corporates and even insurers realize it’s an important capital pool and too large to ignore. But, many non-EU managers, particularly in Asia and the US, see AIFMD as a problem. Stats tell you that 90% are relying on reverse solicitation. That may not be a long-term solution, but it’s what people are doing.
By listing a fund on Gibraltar Stock Exchange or creating a securitization solution with a GSX member firm could be considered as dipping your toe into the European swimming pool without actually making that big decision (and big investment) about whether to come onshore.
Gibraltar is part of the EU and fully compliant with EU law and directives. The jurisdiction has been enjoying a continuous GDP growth of 10% p.a. for many years. GSX is the newest building block in Gibraltar’s strong and diversified financial services industry.
