GUERNSEY    RECEIVES    TOP    MARKS    FOR    TRANSPARENCY    FROM    OECD’S GLOBAL FORUM Guernsey   has   received   an   overall   rating   of   ‘Compliant’   from   the   OECD’s   Global   Forum   on   Transparency   and   Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. The   rating   follows   the   second   round   of   Global   Forum   peer   reviews   to   assess   compliance   with   the   international standard on tax transparency and exchange of information on request. Guernsey   and   Jersey   were   both   rated   Largely   Compliant   after   the   first   round   of   reviews   ended   in   2016.   While   Jersey and   the   Isle   of   Man   were   two   of   the   first   jurisdictions   reviewed   as   part   of   the   second   round,   Guernsey’s   did   not   take place   until   August   2017.   Confirmation   from   the   OECD   that   Guernsey   is   Compliant   matches   the   ratings   of   the   other Crown Dependencies.
GUERNSEY IS A “HEART VALVE” FOR PRIVATE EQUITY INDUSTRY Guernsey   offers   “authority   and   certainty”   with   its   expertise   in   the   private   equity   sector,   according   to   the   head   of   the industry body in the UK. Tim   Hames,   Director   General   of   the   British   Private   Equity   and   Venture   Capital   Association   (BVCA),   was   speaking   on   a short visit to Guernsey as part of the ongoing work of the BVCA Channel Islands Group. Mr   Hames   said   that   the   organisation,   which   set   up   its   CI   Group   nearly   four   years   ago,   had   become   “better   advocates of   the   Channel   Islands’   position,   and   have   gained   a   deeper   knowledge   that   we   simply   wouldn’t   have   had”   through   the CI Group.
GUERNSEY   FUNDS   MAY   BE   SET   FOR   PRE-BREXIT   BOOST   AS   MANAGERS AVOID UNCERTAINTY Guernsey   funds   could   be   set   for   a   burst   of   pre-Brexit   activity   as   fund   managers   prepare   for   the   uncertainty   of   the   UK’s departure from the European Union in 2019, delegates heard at the Guernsey Funds Masterclass. Lack   of   clarity   about   the   UK’s   regulatory   position   could   lead   managers   to   seek   to   launch   new   funds   before   March 2019, and to use stable and understood regulatory environments such as that in Guernsey, it has been suggested. “I   think   there   is   a   real   wind   of   opportunity,”   said   Robert   Mellor,   UK   Asset   Management   Tax   Partner   at   PwC,   who delivered the keynote address at the Guernsey Finance-hosted event in London.
GUERNSEY   PLAYING   A   KEY   ROLE   AS   UK   FINANCIAL   SERVICES   PREPARE FOR BREXIT Guernsey   is   playing   an   important   role   in   helping   the   financial   services   sector   in   London   and   the   wider   UK   to   prepare the industry to thrive once Britain leaves the European Union. Miles   Celic,   chief   executive   of   TheCityUK,   which   has   been   working   with   Guernsey   through   a   relationship   with   Guernsey Finance   for   the   past   year,   told   an   audience   of   more   than   350   at   the   promotional   agency’s   annual   update   that   the island’s longstanding position as a ‘third country’ to the EU offered valuable insight for the industry in the UK. Mr   Celic,   whose   organisation   represents   UK-based   financial   and   related   professional   services,   said:   “The   lesson   we   are having   to   relearn   is   that   we   want   to   continue   to   have   the   relationship   outside   of   the   EU   in   the   same   way   we   did   before we joined the Common Market in 1973.
INTERNATIONAL STOCK EXCHANGE LISTINGS UP 40% There   were   705   new   listings   on   The   International   Stock   Exchange   (TISE)   during   2017,   an   increase   of   203   (40%)   on   the previous year, taking the total number of listed securities on the Exchange to 2,511 at the end of December. Growth   areas   for   new   listings   last   year   included   debt   products,   such   as   high   yield   bonds,   which   proved   particularly popular, and convertible bonds, and investment vehicles, including Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). “It   is   fantastic   that   we   have   built   on   our   success   of   previous   years   by   substantially   increasing   new   business   during 2017.   This   significant   rise   in   the   number   of   new   listings   at   the   Exchange   reflects   the   growing   recognition   from   issuers and   their   advisers   that   TISE   provides   the   most   appropriate   listing   venue   for   their   securities,”   said   Fiona   Le   Poidevin, CEO of The International Stock Exchange Group Limited (TISEG).

LONDON REMAINS TOP DESTINATION FOR PROPERTY INVESTORS London has retained its title as the world’s top destination for property investment, a new study said on Wednesday. Buyers   shrugged   off   Brexit   concerns   to   spend   £16.2   billion   on   offices   in   the   capital   in   2018.   That   compares   with   £14.3 billion invested in Manhattan, £12.1 billion in Paris and £8.4 billion in Hong Kong. Chinese   investors   were   among   the   dominant   buyers   during   the   period,   and   in   addition   2018   saw   South   Korea significantly   increase   its   investment   in   central   London,   with   a   £2.56   billion   spend.   That   was   an   eight-fold   increase   on the previous year.
DION DUBLIN DRIVES THE BRIDGING MARKET Following   a   hugely   successful   20-year   career   that   saw   Dion   Dublin   play   for   the   likes   of   Manchester   United,   Aston   Villa, Celtic   and   England,   it   was   perhaps   predictable   that   this   likeable   and   erudite   professional   would   enter   the   world   of football punditry. Somewhat less likely was his transfer into the booming world of TV property programmes. There   can   be   little   doubt   that   shows   such   as   Homes   under   the   Hammer   which   has   been   running   since   2003,   have inspired a generation of property investors and developers in the UK. While   the   name   of   the   show   is   a   slight   misnomer,   commercial,   industrial   and   even   simply   plots   of   land   feature alongside   residential   lots,   there   can   be   little   doubt   that   such   shows   have   played   an   important   role   in   the   huge   growth of short-term bridge lending, particularly in the last 10 years since the credit crunch.
