About Artemis

The Team at Artemis pride themselves on providing a personal and professional service targeted to meet each client’s requirements. We believe in ongoing client communication and wherever possible, face to face meetings to forge lasting relationships and enhanced client understanding.

Some of the many ways in which our services can be of benefit to our clients are:-

 

  • The passing of assets to family members and future generations in an orderly manner.
  • The protection of the capital value of assets.
  • Providing enhanced confidentiality and privacy.
  • A flexible approach to board composition and personal trusteeships.
  • Ensuring that clients’ wishes are, as far as possible, carried out after their deaths.

We have no ties with any specific banks, investment managers or other advisors and this independence allows us to work with our clients’ existing advisors and to provide recommendations as required.

"We have a wealth of experience in dealing with both complex family office style arrangements and our flat management structure allows us to offer our services on a cost competitive basis."


About Guernsey

 

The Island of Guernsey (the second largest Channel Island) forms part of the British Isles, but not part of the United Kingdom nor the European Union. Guernsey has an area of only 24.3 square miles and a population of approximately 60,000. The Island is situated in the Gulf of St Malo approximately 30 miles west of the French Cherbourg Peninsula.

Although foreign affairs and defence are dealt with by the UK, Guernsey is self-governing and has its own parliament, known as the States of Guernsey. It also has its own separate legal judicial system as well as its own legislature. It is fiscally independent from the UK and has enjoyed continuity and stability of government for over 800 years.

Guernsey enjoys a special relationship with the European Union (EU) which excludes Guernsey from most of the effects of the Treaty of Rome. There are, however, special arrangements under Protocol 3 for the free movement of manufactured and agricultural goods between Guernsey and the EU member states. Guernsey has a flourishing finance industry with a maximum income tax rate of 20% and no capital gains, inheritance or withholding taxes.

 

Guernsey is in the same time zone as the UK, and frequent air links to London and other UK airports permit one-day business trips, and for those that wish to stay longer there is a wide range of top quality hotels and restaurants available to meet all the needs of the business traveller.

Finance business in the Bailiwick of Guernsey is regulated to the highest international standards with a diverse and innovative environment. Guernsey now has a worldwide reputation for international business and has achieved a unique combination of stable government, careful regulation and a distinctive style that is the envy of many. Fiduciary services are regulated by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission.  Guernsey is at the top of the table of compliant jurisdictions based upon recent reviews by the Financial Action Task Force.
