The Banking and Financial Services team at ISOLAS regularly advises both local and major international banks and other regulated entities on a vast array of matters, from licensing and regulatory issues to lending and day to day general banking business.

Our experience and knowledge enables us to advise clients on the practical effects of both national and international regulatory trends and to provide advice on the structuring of transactions, new products and services in line with such trends.

The team incorporates ISOLAS dedicated MiFID team which has been instrumental in a large number of regulated entities achieving MiFID compliance within the relevant time frames.

Currently, the team is heavily involved in advising banks on the provisions and changes effected by the Payment Services Directive and the strategic changes that have resulted from such changes.

The team not only understands the Gibraltar financial services industry but also brings an international perspective that accommodates today’s increasingly common cross-border nature of banking and financial services transactions.
