BVI Launches Research of BVI Financial Services Sector


A research was commissioned by the BVI government with the purpose to examine contribution of the jurisdiction's financial services industry to the global economy. As part of the project, a research team from Capital Economics will visit the British Virgin Islands on 27-29 June to meet with representatives of the government, BVI FSC and the industry, and get preliminary results. The study will be funded both by the government and the private sector.

The main subject of the research will be financial, economic and legislative ties between the financial services industry in the BVI and the international community. It will show how BVI business structures have facilitated global commerce by connecting markets and launching global investment, trade and capital flow. Special focus will be made on BVI connections with the Chinese economy and its growth

According to the executive director of BVI Finance Lorna Smith, “The Capital Economics study will provide valuable research, facts and figures to help promote the jurisdiction, assist potential clients in better understanding the benefits of doing business in the BVI and challenge ill-informed voices in the international community seeking to dispute the value that the BVI’s financial services brings to global business.”
