Barclays in Guernsey
We provide local personal and premier banking services together with Business, Corporate and specialist banking services to personal customers and corporate clients who live and work in Guernsey or use it as a regional base.
WHY CHOOSE GUERNSEY?
Over the last 50 years, Guernsey has become recognised as a leading international finance centre, supporting the wide range of banking and investment companies based there. It has built a reputation for excellence in supporting many financial services sectors including fiduciaries, captive insurance and Fund Administration.
A STABLE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE EU
Guernsey enjoys a special relationship with the EU, benefiting from free movement of both goods and trade between the island and member states. Guernsey is not obliged to implement all EU directives, but the island has voluntarily adopted these when appropriate in order to help create a financial services centre with the highest international standards.
At the same time, its stable and democratic government offers political and economic stability. Together with legal and fiscal independence, the island is able to respond quickly to changeable business needs.
THE REGULATORY ENVIRONMENT
Under the leadership of the Guernsey Financial Services Commission, the island’s regulatory framework offers robust protection with the highest standards together with an approach that understands and allows innovation to thrive. In addition, the Guernsey Banking Deposit Compensation Scheme provides peace of mind for savers.
