Executive Summary: The economy is dominated by the finance sector. To protect its limited resources the government tends to discourage labour-intensive inward investment controlled by non-residents. There are no investment grants or incentives, but electronics and other knowledge-based industries are encouraged. Guernsey has Europe's largest captive insurance sector as well as strong banking, investment fund and trusts sectors, with a well-developed advisory and financial infrastructure. The Channel Islands Stock Exchange, which has become a key part of tax-efficient European corporate finance, is based in Guernsey. There is no corporate tax, except for financial companies which pay tax at 10%. Guernsey remains a favoured base for holding and trading companies working into the EU, and for e-commerce activity.
