Guernsey’s International Capital Flows

KPMG were engaged by the States of Guernsey to research and analyse the economic benefits the Guernsey funds industry provides to the UK and Europe.

Guernsey’s International Capital Flows report was compiled after extensive quantitative and qualitative research and demonstrates the Island's expertise as a funds centre and a facilitator of global investment into the UK, Europe and other economies.

The report highlights the benefits deriving from the funds industry, including:
