Independent, privately owned fiduciary and investment services company


Guernsey – A centre for international finance

A globally trusted jurisdiction with a reputation for stability, substance, transparency and innovation.

Lancaster is based on the beautiful island of Guernsey, situated in the English Channel, 30 miles west of France and a one-hour flight from London.

Like our clients, reputation is important to us. Lancaster is proud of Guernsey’s reputation for innovation, security, substance and professionalism in financial services.

Guernsey has been known as a centre of excellence for financial services for over 50 years. The stable government, combined with the respected regulatory body, the Guernsey Financial Services Commission, has earned the island a reputation for stability and the highest levels of transparency and regulatory compliance.

Independent from the UK and the EU and with its own respected legal and tax system, Guernsey is well known for its forward-looking approach. This unique combination of security and agility makes it a first-choice location for excellent trust and company services for both private individuals and corporate entities.

Firsts for Guernsey include developing the Protected Cell Company structure, the Guernsey Foundation, Private Investment Funds and more recently, the first regulated ‘green fund’ regime.

Guernsey is committed to tax transparency, is on the OECD Whitelist and introduced its Economic Substance legislation in 2019.

The jurisdiction has a multi-sector financial services sector, with leading expertise in funds, insurance, pensions and private wealth, making it a jurisdiction of choice for sophisticated international families and global companies.
