The Gibraltar Stock Exchange (GSX) is Europe’s newest stock exchange. With a focus on reputation, regulation and speed to market, GSX’s unique listing solutions can offer:
- A European gateway solution for non-EU and EU alternative fund managers using securitization providing promotion rights, prospectus passporting and UCITS eligibility
- Bond issues for SMEs at competitive rates
- Reinsurance solutions using Securitization (ILS, Cat-bonds)
With the EU representing 25% of global wealth, many global fund managers, corporates and even insurers realize it’s an important capital pool and too large to ignore. But, many non-EU managers, particularly in Asia and the US, see AIFMD as a problem. Stats tell you that 90% are relying on reverse solicitation. That may not be a long-term solution, but it’s what people are doing.
By listing a fund on Gibraltar Stock Exchange or creating a securitization solution with a GSX member firm could be considered as dipping your toe into the European swimming pool without actually making that big decision (and big investment) about whether to come onshore.
