Asset Managers Gibraltar
The funds industry in Gibraltar has developed into a rounded, sophisticated element of the financial services offering. We provide solutions for institutional investment and structuring, in addition to modern and effective wealth management for High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs).
Combined with the use of trust structures, Gibraltar offers an attractive and specialised onshore solution with access to the UK, post-Brexit. With a flat rate of 12.5% corporate tax, attractive personal tax regimes can be tailor-made for funds and finance professionals. Gibraltar has a capped maximum amount of income tax payable on only the first £118,000 of income (Cat 2). For all these reasons, Gibraltar is the domicile of choice for funds seeking access to the UK in a post-Brexit context.
Gibraltar offers many advantages for independent asset managers seeking access to the UK, including:
- Full passporting rights and access to the UK market by virtue of bilateral and exclusive arrangements
- A jurisdiction with a real-world, fully diversified economy with a GDP nearing £2bn, ranked fourth in the world on a GDP per-capita basis, generated by a workforce of over 27,000 and growing at a pace of over 10%
- Continued growth in tough operating conditions
- A common-law jurisdiction compliant with EU and all other international obligations, with a focus and determination to remain compliant
