About Guernsey

A world class international financial centre


NSM was established in Guernsey to provide offshore financial services to clients from all over the world. Guernsey remains our headquarters, and the seat of our board. We complement structuring from Guernsey with the provision of onshore services from our London office, as many of our international clients hold UK assets. A large proportion of our clients are from the Middle East and as such we also operate a representative office in Dubai.

NSM is regulated by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC), which is known for its robust regulation but with a reputation for having an open-door policy and taking an intelligently flexible approach. In addition to overseeing the fiduciary services market (including trust, foundations and corporate services) and the investment funds sector, the GFSC also now regulate the pensions market with a focus on transparency and treating members fairly. 

Guernsey is recognised as a jurisdiction of choice for good reason:

  • Best in class regulation
  • Stable and secure
  • Highly experienced (an international financial centre since the mid-1960s)
  • Top credit rating (S&P AA)
  • #1 in fighting financial crime (highest MONEYVAL 2016 rating)
  • Tax neutral
  • Respectful of privacy
