Isle of Man Pensions
Why Isle of Man?
The Isle of Man’s close proximity to the UK, established pensions industry and robust regulation from the Insurance and Pensions Authority has made it an extremely successful QROPS jurisdiction. The presence of the major international life offices on the island also helps to ensure a seamless investment process.
