The Bailiwick of Guernsey, incorporating the second largest island of Alderney, offers a multitude of advantages to businesses looking for a home to set up shop. Commercially, fiscally and from a lifestyle perspective, the Bailiwick islands certainly pack a punch. For eGambling businesses, it is the reputation and experience of the world-renowned Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) that first leads them to discover all that the Bailiwick has to offer. From there, they are consistently impressed by the high quality of business support services, advanced technical infrastructure, calibre of locally-grown talent and thriving international business community.
So, for any businesses that are yet to discover our islands, here are our top five benefits of relocating your eGambling business to the Bailiwick.
- Stability and reputation
Alderney’s regulator, the AGCC, is a globally recognised institution, respected for its risk-based approach to regulation and over 17 years’ experience of the industry. Across the water, Guernsey is internationally renowned for success in financial services provision and innovation in FinTech. The islands are home to some of the world’s leading financial institutions as well as the biggest names in eGambling, all benefiting from a stable political regime and transparent, low tax economy.
- Support from the top
Innovative digital businesses and the eGambling sector in particular are fully supported by the States of Guernsey, which recognises the importance of the industry in its 2020 vision document – the Digital Sector Strategic Framework. The government is committed to becoming the location of choice for digital businesses.
- Unrivalled technical infrastructure
Guernsey’s resilient fibre connectivity offers global links from the island. Its world-class data centres, highly skilled staff and IT service providers provide a reliable, cost-effective technical solution.
- Home-grown excellence
The Bailiwick is home to a host of administrative, legal, telecommunications and corporate services providers with an in-depth knowledge of the eGambling industry. In addition, the islands boast a talent pool of local, qualified graduates and technical, digital and marketing experts.
- Enviable lifestyle
Life isn’t all about work, and while the business advantages to operating out of the Bailiwick are vast, the outdoor lifestyle, Michelin-recognised dining and VAT-free High Street among a host of other benefits, mean that there’s something to offer all tastes and ages.
In a short blog, we’ve only scratched the surface of all that the islands of Guernsey and Alderney have to offer.
