About Guernsey

Prestigious and sophisticated.

Guernsey is world renowned as a high calibre jurisdiction for the management of trusts and other fiduciary matters. Politically stable, regulated and respected this is a prestigious financial location for good reason. While steeped in tradition and credibility, Guernsey is also a sophisticated offshore centre where cutting edge solutions can be found to create more opportunities to enhance investment and wealth.

Guernsey is a self-governing dependency of the British Crown. It neither forms part of the United Kingdom nor the European Union. By constitutional convention, the island enjoys autonomy in all matters of internal government, including powers to enact legislation and raise taxes. The island’s constitutional position makes it the ideal location for the establishment and administration of fiduciary structures.

Guernsey has a wealth of experienced lawyers, tax advisers, investment and fund managers, insurance specialists, trustees and administrators who are at the service of private clients from around the world and a mature finance sector that has decades of experience of dealing with international structures.

Secure and regulated.

Guernsey’s financial services sector is regulated by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission, that underpins the high levels of corporate governance, compliance with international regulatory, anti-money laundering and anti-bribery and corruption standards that have maintained the ongoing stability of this location.

PTC Trustees Limited is regulated and licensed by the Commission, which means that the firm fulfils key criteria with respect to capital adequacy, insurance cover, compliance, staff qualifications, training and management, as well as internal corporate governance standards.

Stable but innovative.
