Welcome to ILS World

Isle of Man

Secure, efficient and business friendly, ILS World's approach is defined by our home jurisdiction, the Isle of Man.

British Virgin Islands

ILS World opened its doors in Road Town, Tortola in 1994. From this central location in the British Virgin Islands we provide a timely and efficient service, drawing upon locally cultivated knowledge and applying it within an independent, global network.


From our Shanghai office, ILS World provides commercial and private clients access to the right global network to meet their ambitions.


The ILS World independent network expanded into the Middle East's vibrant economic and cultural centre in 2005. Since then, we have combined Dubai's excellent reputation as a business friendly and well regulated economy with our significant experience in the jurisdiction to deliver peerless fiduciary, regional incorporation and corporate administration services to clients operating in this exciting marketplace.

Hong Kong

ILS World combines a straightforward and efficient service with Hong Kong's business friendly environment to offer our private and commercial clients confidence and peace of mind in a dynamic marketplace.


Our London office is ideally situated to serve a large local client base. It is the hub of ILS World’s administrative function for our UK client companies and an excellent location from which to liaise with a global client portfolio.


Our expansion into Portugal in 1999 was in response to the needs of our clients. We’re here because you need us to be. Since then, ILS World’s presence in this exciting marketplace has enabled us to better meet considerable demand for offshore wealth management and protection services and do so with the care and pragmatism expected of all ILS World locations.


ILS World opened its doors in Geneva in 2005 and offers a full range of corporate and fiduciary services. With expertise in international holding and trading structures and the ability to manage those structures from within one of the world’s most respected and stable jurisdictions, the business has grown organically and rapidly.


We draw upon Uruguay’s reputation as a strong economy with a stable fiscal and political environment and robust regulatory practices to offer clients wishing to invest in and manage wealth within South America the perfect regional platform.


Immigration Rules!

Immigration is a topical subject around Europe at present as many countries try to deal with the influx of migrants and refugees from both within and outside of it's borders.

Immigration is a topical subject around Europe at present as many countries try to deal with the influx of migrants and refugees from both within and outside of it's borders.

The topic will undoubtedly form a major part of the debate as the United Kingdom votes on whether or not to remain in the European Union. We have already seen a tightening of controls allowing people into the UK but on the Isle of Man the Government are taking a different approach. In fact they are positively trying to encourage growth in the population from the current c85,000 up to 100,000+.

The Tier 1 Entrepreneur and Investor routes are almost identical to the UK, in fact the application is submitted on the same platform. The Isle of Man's goal is to create more jobs locally and the entrepreneur scheme ties in nicely with this policy as within 3 years and 4 months you need to have employed at least 2 people.

We are even seeing changes to the work permit system for non-local workers. The system has always been in place to protect local workers with some notable exceptions such as doctors and teachers, but with the growth of the eBusiness sector it is sometimes difficult to find someone locally with the necessary skills. Changes to the work permit system will soon allow some non-local specialists in ICT or eBusiness to be employed without the need for a work permit.

The Government has recently established a £50m Enterprise Development Fund to help businesses of all sizes to create lasting employment on the Island. Support is available for new start up, accelerator and more established businesses.

The Island's Department of Economic Development has a strapline that says 'The Isle of Man – Where You Can' which seems very appropriate in this case.
