Our dedicated team works closely with multiple regulatory bodies across several jurisdictions.

Affinity have assisted clients on many innovative cases in the FinTech sector.


Affinity provides tailored regulatory advice and structures to suit each client’s individual requirements, with optimum focus reaching the client’s end goal and applying innovative tax efficient solutions whilst operating within the relevant rules and regulations.

We have built a prestigious reputation in the Isle of Man for providing an exceptional service, which has led to many organic referrals. Our relationship with the regulator, the Gambling Supervision Commission (GSC) in the Isle of Man, and close network of intermediaries trust our business and support our services. We have worked with the regulator on a number of innovative cases we believe is a testament to our position in the sector. An example, we assisted a client in obtaining the first issued token-based software supply licence.
