WHO WE ARE
BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS (BVI)
The British Virgin Islands (BVI), situated about 60 miles east of Puerto Rico, is an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, which enjoys responsibility for its own internal self-government.
The official currency of the BVI has been the United States Dollar (US$) since 1959.
As a British Overseas Territory, the BVI offers all the security and stability that is traditionally associated with the British flag. It is responsible for its own self-government through a democratically elected House of Assembly.
The United Kingdom remains responsible for the BVI’s external affairs, defense, internal security, and judicial system. However, because of the BVI’s integrity and responsiveness to the interests of the financial community, together with its commitment to good governance, the British Government has devolved responsibility for the development and management of its own financial services industry.
The BVI has become the world’s largest corporate domicile, with more than 1,000,000 companies incorporated in the jurisdiction and over 2,000 registered and recognized mutual funds.
The BVI provides a neutral and safe platform to pool and access capital, which is recognized by leading international investors and banks.
