The experts’ take on expansion to Gibraltar

Albert Isola MP, Gibraltar Minister with responsibility for Digital and Financial Services, added: “We are delighted to welcome Duff and amp; Phelps to Gibraltar, particularly in light of the special and historic relationship between the UK and the Rock. This announcement brings with it a commitment to building a sustained locally-based operation, backed up by a truly global network.”

Stoneman said: “I am delighted that we have been able to expand our services into Gibraltar, enabling us to offer a blended range of services from across the Duff and amp; Phelps portfolio.”

“Not only is there an opportunity for a new restructuring practice in Gibraltar, but the regulatory nature of many business sectors based on ‘the Rock’ – such as insurance, gaming, and financial services – means that we will be able to offer a wide range of additional services centered on a broad range of solutions including compliance and regulatory consulting. It is our intention to offer these services via a local multi-skilled team, backed up by the extended Duff and amp; Phelps organization.”
