It represents a further demonstration of Guernsey’s commitment to working with overseas regulatory authorities and to play its part in addressing matters of global interest and concern in the area of financial services regulation. We are looking forward to developing a close working relationship with our new partners at the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Abu Dhabi Global Market.”

    Mr Richard Teng, Chief Executive Officer, FSRA of ADGM added, “We are pleased to continue our efforts in establishing closer collaboration with global authorities to bolster the high regulatory practice and standards in our respective jurisdictions.  The new partnership with Guernsey FSC allows both regulators to better understand the needs of our stakeholders and facilitate future cross-border efforts.
