Amongst other documents the team has submitted the business plan, information about financial and non-financial resources, risk register and compliance manual.

Once all the details in the documents are reviewed by the Regulator, in case of a success Oxygen might be then invited to deliver a presentation to the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (GFSC). The presentation is an integral part of the authorisations process and gives successful applicants an opportunity to demonstrate how they meet the GFSC’s regulatory outcomes/principles.
