The Gibraltar Financial Services Commission are committed to delivering a streamlined authorisation process which is consistent, fair and efficient and which supports speed to market for the industry whilst, at the same time, providing confidence that key risks are identified and mitigated in order to protect the public and the reputation of Gibraltar. As with all other regulated sectors, the GFSC will take a risk based approach to all aspects of the authorisation process.
Firms are encouraged to engage with local professional advisors in order to determine if the proposed business model would fall within the scope of the DLT Framework. Once advisors are comfortable with the proposed business we welcome the opportunity to discuss the application proposal, business model and type of activity and/or services the firm wishes to provide in, or from Gibraltar. At this stage, the GFSC will provide potential applicants with appropriate guidance on the application process.
