About GACO

About GACO

The Guernsey Association of Compliance Officers (“GACO”) was formed in April 1999 with the following objectives:

  • To provide a forum for discussion of governance, risk & compliance issues
  • To provide information and other services to its members
  • To assist other formal Guernsey bodies on governance, risk & compliance issues

GACO currently has a broad membership representing all businesses Regulated and Registered by the GFSC.  This diversity of membership is reflected in the composition of the Committee, which has people with a range of backgrounds and experience covering all the elements of the financial services businesses in Guernsey.  Committee members are elected for a 2-year term of office by the members at the Annual General Meeting and can be assisted by co-opted members.
