Guernsey had the largest captive insurance industry in Europe in 2014, as well as the fourth largest in the world. In 2013, Guernsey’s major industries included tourism, finance and agriculture. The global financial crisis (2008–2009) and subsequent debt crisis in Europe had a negative impact on the overall economy. However, the insurance industry managed to grow at a review-period (2009–2013) compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1%. The non-life segment constitutes 56.2% of the total industry’s segment share in 2013.

Guernsey’s retail industry is an important driver of the economy and achieved robust growth during the review period. A taxation agreement was signed between Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man to end tax avoidance and evasion in January 2013. According to the regulatory authority, the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC), 46 international insurance companies were licensed to operate insurance business in the first half of 2013.
