“CWEIC is delighted to welcome Hassans as a Strategic Partner. Their international expertise and wide-ranging professional service offering will in no doubt add great value to our network and help strengthen and deepen Gibraltar’s relationships across many of the business sectors of the Commonwealth. We very much look forward to working together.”
