The Channel Islands are an archipelago in the English Channel. They include two main Crown Dependencies, Jersey and Guernsey. Each island has a global reputation as an Offshore Finance Centre that’s close to, but independent from, Britain and mainland Europe.
The main language spoken is English, however most European languages are catered for and the main currency used is the British pound. The pillars of our financial services industry are based on education which provides the industry with home grown talent, technology and communications and political stability.
Thanks to a forward thinking approach, Jersey and Guernsey are at the forefront of banking, private wealth, pensions, funds and capital markets. Some of the islands’ businesses also specialise in Islamic finance, fintech, philanthropy and socially responsible investing.
Employing 550 people, across 17 locations HLB’s Channel Island firm strives to provide a quality and enterprising service for its clients.
