Why the Channel Islands?

There is an Islands’ saying that our fortunes are linked to our foundation on solid granite. As a Crown dependency, our head of State is the Duke of Normandy (currently the Queen of England) and we are not and have never been part of the European Union. However, there are a few more advantages to the Channel Islands that we believe matter.


Located in the English Channel, the Islands are connected by daily air services to UK airports in little over 45 minutes. Data hub connections are resilient and highly secure data connectivity is provided within the global network of subsea cables, connecting the Islands to the UK, France and onwards to the rest of the world. We operate on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and British Summer Time (BST) allowing us well-balanced access to worldwide markets.

Business focus

With stable, pro-business governments and globally recognised regulatory bodies, the Jersey and Guernsey financial services commissions ensure that we have an agile, yet robust, approach to business. This, along with internationally-compliant tax neutral regimes, allows us to deliver competitive, world-class professional services to support global networks.


The Islands are dedicated to service, with company registries for example providing 24/7 facilities that can allow company formation in one hour. We have skilled personnel across diverse economies, including a thriving and dynamic entrepreneurial tech community, and cutting-edge intellectual property legislation.
