The Isle of Man has a thriving and internationally highly regarded insurance industry. In addition to Isle of Man based international life companies, which are among the most successful in the world, the Isle of Man is already host to captive insurance companies providing cover to numerous UK and global household names in the energy, telecommunications, transportation, manufacturing and retail sectors, among others and is likely to attract further attention from UK companies wishing to take advantage of reforms to the UK Controlled Foreign Companies rules.
