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.

We have the expertise to assist with multi-jurisdictional fiduciary services for international structures
As Chairman of Greenko Group plc, I have enjoyed a four year association with IQE during which time they not only provided administration, corporate governance and company secretarial support but also the [dedicated] services of Mike Brown FCIS as a qualified and experienced Company Secretary to act on our behalf. Throughout this time, I found IQE and their staff to be very helpful, patient and professional in their dealings. As a London Stock Exchange AIM listed company we undertook several complex multi-jurisdictions corporate transactions and I am particularly appreciative of IQE’s invaluable support on these occasions.
