The Guernsey Investment & Funds Association (GIFA) was established as a trade association in 1989 and merged with the Guernsey Investment Managers and Stock Brokers Association (GIMSA) in 2019. GIFA was formed to represent the Island’s growing fund and investment management industry. Our membership spans the whole spectrum of the Island’s investment community, including fund managers, administrators, custodians, investment managers, stock brokers and non-executive directors as well as professional firms such as lawyers, accountants and consultants who are closely involved in the work of the investment industry.
GIFA’s principal objective is to protect and enhance the collective interests of its members. This means working closely with the Island’s government, promotional agencies and regulators to ensure that investment & funds businesses are able to develop and introduce new products and services to meet the increasingly sophisticated needs of the international investor. It also means striving to maintain the Island’s reputation as a safe and well regulated offshore centre with a strong commitment to investor protection.
