As the UK continues to provide a safe haven for international investors on the back of a growing economy, the demand for investment opportunity is strong amongst a client base made up of internationally listed companies, private equity vehicles, overseas family offices and companies looking to expand into the UK.
As an Isle of Man based Trust and Corporate services business which is licensed by the Isle of Man Financial Supervision Commission, IQE provide administration and accounting services to these international clients via a team of professionally qualified chartered secretaries, directors and accountants.
We have seen recent FDI into areas such as energy and infrastructure, R&D and real estate. The North West has been successful in attracting its fair share of this investment and with particular regard to real estate, whilst we were involved in 20 property acquisitions and 14 developments in 2013, last year for the first time we provided services to more acquisitions of commercial properties in the north of England than the south, so clearly overseas appetite is changing.
In addition we have seen initial acquisitions evolve into significant developments, with local development spend, ultimate regeneration and longer term job creation as a result.
We see this as an excellent opportunity for the business communities of the North West and the Isle of Man to engage. As our long standing international clients continue to transact in the North West, the IQE team will be in the region regularly over the course of 2015.

On a recent transaction we worked closely with IQE to set up and run a corporate structure to facilitate a new residential development in London. We found the IQE team responsive and proactive. It was clear that their property experience added value and understanding of the clients’ requirements on the project. Christine Jackson, Partner, Real Estate Group, Lawrence Graham LLP
