Business Incubation

A unique solution for establishing a presence with minimal capital expenditure.

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.

Our innovative service provides you with a turn-key solution to achieve a presence with all the substance needed to satisfy regulatory and tax authorities. We achieve this by providing you with the board members and supporting staff commensurate with the operations of the company. These personnel are experts in their respective field.

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 Optimus’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.
