Why Jersey?

Jersey is a leading international financial centre, offering stability, reliability and expertise. Its status as Crown Dependency, tax-neutral environment, central time zone, and proximity to major finance centres in the UK and Europe delivers high-quality business to the island. This, combined with a sophisticated and comprehensive legal and regulatory infrastructure, promotes investor confidence.

With one of the largest numbers of finance industry professionals of any international finance centre, Jersey offers extensive knowledge and expertise.

Why Guernsey?

Guernsey is a pivotal jurisdiction for international business. Independent in outlook, it is well regulated, with a robust legislative framework. In recent years, Guernsey has also grown in reputation as a first-class finance centre in which to conduct business. Guernsey’s tax transparency and high standards of international compliance placed it on the OECD G20 'whitelist' for offshore jurisdictions in 2009.
