A leading multi-jurisdictional Corporate Service Provider
Our performance 2021/22
Our company has achieved unprecedented growth in recent years, which is a testament to our performance across our diverse sector portfolio. Our company is centered on providing a personal approach to corporate services, and we believe our continued organic success is a result of our exceptional client service. As a young, growing company, our business has had many significant recent developments.
In 2021, we achieved Trust Company of the Year – Isle of Man in the Citywealth International Financial Centre Awards. We believe this truly reflects our leading position as a Corporate Service Provider in the Isle of Man and beyond. It showcases our team’s exceptional depth of knowledge in providing bespoke, tailored advice across multiple jurisdictions and sectors.
In 2022, we achieved numerous awards, such as Best Corporate Service Provider in the SME News UK Enterprise Awards.
Another significant milestone in 2021 was our expansion to a new jurisdiction, the Cayman Islands. Our office in the Cayman Islands is an extension of our tried and tested practices in the yachting sector. Our portfolio of yachting clients in Cayman is growing rapidly, this is due to the many referrals we receive based on our level of service.
Our office in the Isle of Man has expanded tremendously due to our stable, organic growth in the luxury asset sector and unprecedented performance from consistent new business in our digital sectors. This has resulted in our teams growing in size and many new exciting appointments to guide our company’s success.
In the last year, we have significantly invested in our team to make Affinity a fantastic place to work. This has included a complete overhaul of our generous benefits packages to provide extra value. We have created a wellness committee, which in addition to the social committee, plans events for the team throughout the year to boost morale and our team bond. We have prioritised our HR to strengthen our relationships and boost communication across all levels.
Our leading position in yachting in both the Isle of Man and Malta involves a loyal client base, with many clients stemming back to our formation in 2004. We have also been active in the aviation sector and recently assisted a client to obtain AOC in Malta.
We have worked on many innovative cases in egaming in recent years, such as assisting clients in setting up crypto gaming platforms that run on the blockchain. We assisted the first egaming client on the Isle of Man to not require a player protection model due to the blockchain technology. We are also receiving many eGaming enquiries in Malta.
We have been very active in the Fintech sector and adopt an agile response to industry developments. An example of this is achieving the first token software supplier licence on the Isle of Man, and we assist with blockchain applications and cryptocurrency licencing. We have also begun to explore the Cayman fintech sector and embrace the recently introduced VASP act.
We have been assisting clients in the esports sector, such as setting up esports structures. We sponsored the first esports tournament on the Isle of Man. We believe this sector holds huge potential for our bespoke structuring services and wealth planning services for organisations, players, and teams.
Our most recent emerging sector we have added to our sector portfolio is Cannabis. We have adopted a proactive approach to building our knowledge of the sector and networking within the community. We are developing key relationships to support our position as a leading Corporate Service Provider in the space.
In the last year, we have significantly invested in our CSR, and our team take part in a number of rewarding initiatives. We are developing our CSR strategy across our Group, to support at least one local charity in each jurisdiction every year. Take a look at our recent initiatives here.
Affinity has an ambitious vision for the future, and we are not one to stand still. Our innovation in our brand and service offering has only just begun. As we flourish to encompass more exciting opportunities for our clients, we will always remain true to who we are; a boutique company that provides a personal approach to corporate services that span sectors and jurisdictions.
