Isle of Man, an established investment platform for FDI into the North West

Posted on in IQE Isle of Man

The Isle of Man is a leading international business centre renowned for its innovation, professionalism and long-standing policy of positive engagement with international initiatives and standards. These are just some of the drivers that have attracted international investors from around the globe to utilise the Island as an investment platform for UK FDI for the last 30 years.

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.

For more information on our services, please email Steve McCafferty or call +44 (0) 7624 490561

We have the expertise to assist with multi-jurisdictional fiduciary services for international structures

I work with a number of Corporate Service Providers across several jurisdictions and would have no hesitation in saying that IQE have proved, on numerous occasions to be both the most efficient and professional of them all. IQE has provided a comprehensive service at a consistently high level despite having to deal with some very sensitive cultural complexities reflecting our area of operations. All of the staff have been extremely helpful and will go out of their way to accommodate us. John Bourbon, MSc, FCIB, FCol Charterd FCSI,
