We are regularly involved with investment into the UK, through the provision of suitable special purpose vehicles and one of our core services is incubation and the provision of managed offices to businesses looking to expand into new markets with new products. Working with Siliconiom, a promoter and adviser in to UK start-up businesses and entrepreneurs, IQE together with other sponsors support Isle of Man based events that bring entrepreneurs, investors and advisers together in a "Dragons' Den" style approach that allows UK early stage and start-up businesses to pitch for that essential funding support.
Over the two years these events have been promoted by Siliconiom, around a third of pitches secured funding, the majority of which are UK based businesses.
We are seeing increasing numbers of entrepreneurs and start-ups establishing on the Island to access a new overseas market. Relocation and start-up business across sectors such as tech, film/media, R&D services and biomed businesses are encouraged to set up a physical presence here and can take advantage of generous Isle of Man Government Business Grants where they meet the relevant criteria.
The Isle of Man has an excellent telecoms and power infrastructure which has benefited from hundreds of millions of pounds worth of public and private sector investment in recent years. It is this infrastructure which has helped provide the foundation for the Island's success as a major centre for e-business activities, offering an internationally orientated service expertise to its global client base.
We recognise this as an excellent opportunity for the business communities in the UK and the Isle of Man to engage. The Isle of Man Government has a very positive approach to working with the private sector and our long standing international clients have had a consistently positive approach to UK investment.

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
