The Isle of Man is one of the world's largest off-shore life insurance jurisdictions, a position ascribed to its favourable legislation, low administration costs and excellent communications. Life insurance business, re-insurance, and the creation and management of captive insurance companies are areas of particular expertise at Simcocks.
