20/06/2019 Joey Garcia, Jonathan Garcia

Penned by partners Joey Garcia and Jonathan Garcia, ISOLAS’ chapter focusses on Gibraltar’s approach to financial technology, with topics ranging from High-frequency and Algorithmic Trading and Robo-advisers to RegTech and Open Banking.

Targeted at legal practitioners, general counsel and those in the fintech space, the FinTech 2019 guide provides expert legal commentary on key issues for businesses. The guide covers important developments in the most significant jurisdictions.

Chambers & Partners is a global organisation that identifies and ranks the most outstanding law firms and lawyers in over 180 jurisdictions throughout the world. It also produces the Chambers Global Practice Guides, covering a wide range of topics and is expanding its focus on the “FinTech” practice area.

Joey said: “We have a very technical team at ISOLAS, so it was a welcome acknowledgement of our expertise in this area to be invited to write these chapters on behalf of Chambers & Partners.

“Our FinTech and DLT practice has continued to expand rapidly, thanks to Gibraltar’s flexibility and regulatory approach. We have seen lots of technology companies come to Gibraltar to utilise our legislation and we have lots of exciting developments in the pipeline – and we hope that our Chapter inspires other companies to consider Gibraltar as a good base for their company.”

Jonathan said: “It has been extremely interesting to be involved in the writing of the chapter as it has given us the opportunity to summarise all the legislation and frameworks that the government has introduced to assist both legacy and start-up businesses in developing financial technology. It was clear that, as a jurisdiction, we’ve come far in understanding the industry’s needs in this area and, more importantly, we’re prepared for what’s in store for the future.”
