15/08/2017 News Team

High net worth individual and business relocation specialists to Guernsey, Locate Guernsey, has appointed Edward Stone as UK representative and strategic residence consultant.

Mr Stone, an experienced private client lawyer, has two decades of experience advising high net worth individuals, trustees, beneficiaries, and settlors on wealth succession planning and on questions of residence.

Most recently, Mr Stone served as a partner at Irwin Mitchell for over a year and a half. Prior to this, he was group partner at Collas Crill, an attorney at Conyers, Dill & Pearman, and a solicitor at Withers.

The interim head of Locate Guernsey, Andrew Carey, commented: "The UK is a key marketplace for Guernsey and where most of the island’s high net worth residents will have come from. Edward’s contact book is exceptional and he’ll be promoting living in Guernsey to the UK professional advisor community who in turn will advise their own wealthy clients.

“This is a very positive development for Locate Guernsey, and indeed the island more broadly, as inward investment remains a key matter for Guernsey.”

Mr Stone described Guernsey as a “fantastic place to live and work”, and added that "the very high quality of life in the Island; its attractive tax regime for businesses and individuals and the ready-made ‘route-in’ represented by the Open Property Market, mean that Guernsey is an excellent place for relocations.”
