The Governor paid a visit to the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission last Friday where he was introduced to the Commission’s Senior Management Team and discussed the role of the GFSC.

CEO, Samantha Barrass, offered a short presentation on the key function of the GFSC and its purpose of supporting the safe growth of vibrant markets and services for professional and wholesale players; and its objective of protecting consumers and the reputation of Gibraltar.

The Governor focused on some areas of particular interest, and offered his thoughts on the role of the regulator in helping to safeguard Gibraltar. Following the presentation, he was then given a tour of the office.
