Guernsey is home to a small but highly regarded community of independent investment consultants and analysts. This includes not only monitoring and measuring investment performance but also a wide variety of support services covering all aspects of the investment process. Investment consultants also have an important role to play in risk management and mitigation.
Their presence helps to drive the competitiveness of the Island’s investment managers, which is highlighted by the international recognition and accreditation that Guernsey investment managers and related companies have received in recent years.
Guernsey’s stockbrokers provide a range of trading accounts which can be tailored to the needs of their clients. These range from execution-only service to managed service.

Managed service allows you access to both the market for investments and the expertise of the investment manager.
