The British Virgin Islands is a world-class offshore finance centre with a reputation for high standards of transparency and excellence in regulatory affairs. It is that combination which has ensured that funds, trusts, company formations, captive insurance, shipping and other areas in which the territory excels continue to confirm the Jurisdiction as an attractive place in which to do business.
The BVI’s financial landscape is built on the premise of commitment. As a Jurisdiction, we are working to ensure businesses have the maximum opportunity to thrive within the correct legislative framework to help lead the world into a new era. The BVI’s International Finance Centre is committed to keeping the Jurisdiction at the forefront of the world’s financial centres.
The Jurisdiction has always set the highest standards of transparency, regulation, collaboration, enforcement and cooperation, as this has always been a key part of our strategy for retaining our competitive edge.
It is largely due to this fact that our local firms regularly win global awards for excellence and in fact the BVI was ranked by the Financial Times Caribbean and Central American Countries of the Future 2011/2012 as ‘Best for Quality of Life’ and runner up in the ‘Best Human Resources’ division and it is this we are most proud of - the high quality and integrity of our people and business offering.
Dr. the Honourable D. Orlando Smith, OBE
Premier of the British Virgin Islands
