Consultancy and Support


Every company has those moments where the work required exceeds the resources available. This may be for a short term urgent task or a longer term project that may take several months to complete.

You may even find yourself regularly needing an extra person for a few hours, but not enough to warrant recruiting additional staff.

Rather than stew on the issue, Active Group are ideally placed to provide the assistance you require. We have staff competent in all areas of financial services, so whether you need someone to write an AML manual for you, or a team to work on a lengthy CRS project Active are here to help. Let us take on that extra work load for you.

licensee management

In a world where demonstrating proper corporate governance is of key importance, the team you use to run your Licenced entity is one of the most important decisions you will make. This team will need to be able to evidence proper mind and management; they will need to be able to bring substance to your company.

Active’s Licensee Management team have been bringing substance to licenced entities for over fifteen years. We have personnel experienced in all of the licenced disciplines and able to bring their knowledge and experience to the Boards of the companies we support. Underpinning the Board support are the Active personnel able to provide the administrative support to make sure that all aspects of running your company are covered.

Our Licensee Management teams provide unique solutions for Board support with executive and non-executive directors, prudential and cyber risk management driven from our offices providing the substance you need, as well as the ancillary services such as FATCA / CRS (AEOI) Reporting, oversight of delegated functions, and regulatory reporting. Active’s offices are truly a one stop shop for all your business needs.

Compliance and risk management

At Active Group, our Compliance and Risk Management service delivery is built around an ethos of teams of highly qualified professional personnel providing multi-jurisdictional support tailored to the needs of you, our client.

Our personnel can act as MLRO, Compliance Officer, or just support those roles within your organisation. As we work as teams, having an Active Group person acting for you, brings with them the knowledge and support of the whole Active team. We have our fingers on the pulse of the compliance world, so bring to you the most up to date processes and procedures used within the financial services world.

Our Compliance and Risk Management teams also provide help and assistance with Cyber Risk Management, AIFMD reporting, Risk Assessments, and CRS and FATCA (AEOI) Reporting, as well as generally supporting Compliance led projects such as client file reviews, board reviews and preparation for regulatory oversight visits.

Business incubation

Setting up a presence in Guernsey, whether licenced by the GFSC or not, can seem a daunting prospect. Our Incubation Service though, provides the substance you need without the investment in time and capital that would otherwise be required.

Setting up a presence in Guernsey, whether licenced by the GFSC or not, can seem a daunting prospect. Our Incubation Service though, provides the substance you need without the investment in time and capital that would otherwise be required.

The company then outsources such functions as required back to your Group operations whilst retaining the important mind and management duties back in the home jurisdiction. Substance is key, thus aspects of business risk, prudential risk, and cyber risk management, along with proper oversight of outsourced functions all tend to be managed by our teams.

Active’s unique incubation service gives you a presence without having to set up your own office space and employ your own staff. We can manage and run the whole licence application process (if required) which together removes a large amount of the capital and time investment for your business to set up an office in a new jurisdiction.

Family office support

Family Office work requires multi-discipline skills; knowledge of trust and company work, investment management skills, and the ability to deliver a friendly and personal service to the family. Active Group, with our ability to work in all aspects of the financial services industry, is ideally placed to work with you and your family to run and support your business.

Whether the requirement is for a simple Trust, or a more complex structure including multi-jurisdictional companies, different companies with different purposes, and licenced entities, Active Group can provide the support you need.

We can provide executive and non-executive board members for your companies, Trustees for your trusts, and the company registration services to support all entity formations. All of which are wrapped together with a personalised service designed around your unique requirements.

company secretarial

Our Corporate Services team is fully licenced to be able to provide support to corporate and trust entities. This includes the standard company secretarial requirements; registered agent, registered office, minute taking and director provision as well as full Trustee provision.

Our service is specifically tailored for you, the client, to meet your specific requirements. It is underpinned by the Active team ethos – when working with Active Group you may have one main contact, but that person is supported by a whole team of personnel working alongside them.

So whether you need a full corporate service, or just ad hoc company secretarial support, give Active Group a call.
