Part of the British Isles, but not politically part of the UK or the European Union, Guernsey is the second largest of the Channel Islands. Less than 30 miles off the coast of France, it forms part of a Bailiwick, which includes the smaller island of Alderney. An economy which includes a world-renowned finance centre, Europe’s largest captive insurance sector, strong banking, investment fund and trusts sectors and a rapidly growing e-business sector.
The independence of the Bailiwick is reflected in the islands’ economy and its regulatory structures. Guernsey and Alderney have established their own advantageous tax frameworks operating its own regulatory framework.
Data centres are a growing part of the Guernsey economy and are helping it diversify away from mainly finance related industries. Building on the island’s excellent infrastructure, its independent legal system, its inherent security and the wide range of professional skills associated with the finance industry, the island is already an important location for hosting.
