Creating Value: The BVI's Global Contribution

Capital Economics has been commissioned by BVI Finance Limited to research and report upon the contribution made by the British Virgin Islands to the global economy. This report combines new analysis of existing information, statistics and research with the results from a major quantitative and qualitative research exercise among a large and representative sample of financial and professional services firms operating in the territory.
In research of this nature, there is room for debate over the methodologies deployed and approaches taken, while there are, of course, margins of error associated with any survey results and consequent quantitative analysis. However, we have deliberately taken a cautious approach – and sought to make only conservative estimates of the likely benefits of the BVI and never to underplay the potential for any detriment.
