Feb 14 - Gibraltar Finance Centre Exhibited at Captive Live UK Conference
The Gibraltar Finance Centre recently attended and exhibited at the London based ‘Captive Live UK’ Conference, which concentrates on captive insurance companies. These include insurance companies established with the specific objective of insuring risks emanating from their parent group or groups.
The conference was held on the 12th and 13th of February and attended by over 500 delegates over the two days. The Finance Centre department was one of twenty exhibitors at this industry leading event. The group was represented by Mr. Michael Ashton, Mrs. Nyoka Catania and Mrs. Naduiska Segovia. Mr Ashton acted as a panel speaker at the session "What the domiciles are thinking".
Commenting on the event, Minister for Financial Services, Gilbert Licudi noted, ‘the increase in resources available to the Finance Centre department within my Ministry, is now beginning to be deployed effectively and will permit a significant increase in Gibraltar's profile as an international financial centre across all sectors. Only last week, other members of staff were present at the Fonds 13 Conference in Zurich. Profile, however, is only a first step and the ultimate target has to be on new financial services businesses coming to Gibraltar.’
