Why we're based on the Isle of Man?

Our customers take great reassurance from our Isle of Man location. With a well established and successful life and pensions sector, the Isle of Man is now a leading choice for international financial services.

Stable and dependable

Situated in the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man is equidistant between England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

It’s a self-governing dependent territory of the British Crown with its own democratically elected Parliament, judicial system and laws. The island enjoys healthy reserves, supported by a stable and diverse economy and 30 years of consistent economic growth.

Internationally recognised

The Isle of Man holds an Aa2 sovereign rating from Moody’s for financial strength – this is a higher rating than the USA and the same rating as the UK, UAE and Hong Kong.

In addition the Island holds “white list” status from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The OECD recently gave the Isle of Man the highest compliance rating for its international exchange of tax information, a level only achieved by 21 jurisdictions globally.

In 2018 the Island won the prestigious Best International Finance Centre award at the International Adviser Product and Service Awards.

Sophisticated regulation

The island’s principal regulator is the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority (IOMFSA).

The IOMFSA aims to to maintain international confidence in the island’s investment sector, and to deter financial crime.

The IOMFSA is highly respected worldwide, and liaises closely with international colleagues to ensure those who choose the Isle of Man for their finance products can be sure of the highest standards of support.

All of which makes the Isle of Man the ideal location for your investments to be held.
