About TCI for financial services

The Turks and Caicos Islands consist of 40 islands and cays, nine of which are inhabited. With 224 miles of fine, powdery sand beaches, calm turquoise water and the third-largest coral reef in the world, the Islands revel in stunning natural attributes - but the benefits to investors go far beyond its sustainable environment.

The islands have an annual budget surplus, S&P credit rating of BBB+ and are closely connected to major markets across the world.



TCI provides investors with favourable economic conditions, political and economic stability and security from its status as a British Overseas Territory. The legal system is backed by UK law, with the ultimate Court of Appeal the Privy Council in London. Its strong economy drives stability with an estimated annual growth rate of 5.3%.

Operating in Turks & Caicos

A fresh start in next-gen financial services.

The TCI Government is putting a major growth focus on the FS sector - opening up major opportunities for investors, family offices and businesses. If you’re looking for a clean slate and the chance to shape your future on a growing island with a captive audience of high-net-worth individuals, you can make it happen here.

With a luxury tourism product attracting new wealth and UHNW individuals, the Turks and Caicos Islands is the finance centre for future success. With a clear plan for sustainable growth in place, it’s never been easier or more beneficial for investors to set up shop in a location where they can secure their legacy and financial future.



To be eligible for a Permanent Residence Certificate (PRC) by investment, investors need to invest: at least $750,000 in the islands of Grand Turk, Salt Cay, North Caicos, Middle Caicos or South Caicos, or at least $1,500,000 in Providenciales and the other islands and cays. In both cases, at least 60% of employees must be Turks and Caicos Islanders. Qualifying investors in the FS sector may be eligible for special terms if they meet the criteria set by the TCI Government. The applicant’s spouse and children may be endorsed onto the PRC, which will permit them to reside in TCI.

Local Corporations

The Turks and Caicos have a substantial licensed and regulated company management profession. Many experienced and knowledgeable advisors are available to set up companies, funds, limited partnerships, protected cell companies and companies limited by guarantee. The costs vary depending on the complexity of the structure - but overall professional costs are considerably lower than other jurisdictions in the region, a list of company managers can be found at the Turks and Caicos Islands Financial Service Commission.

Work Permits

Work permits can be issued based on the skills needed in The Turks and Caicos Islands. If an investor doesn’t meet the investment requirements above, it’s still possible to be granted a work permit for a company the investor sets up on the island. The TCI Government is also prepared to offer guaranteed renewable work permits to qualified applicants in the financial services sector - but will continue to impose certain restrictions on operating businesses to manage employment opportunities for citizens of the islands.

Hiring Employees

The TCI Government puts a major focus and public resource into education to deliver a qualified pool of residents. As a result, there is a wealth of professional administrative, accounting and financial services staff available on the islands. If incoming businesses are unable to source suitable employees locally, or if specialist skills are required, concessions can be granted to enable qualified businesses to bring in their teams. All TCI asks is that there is a plan in place to recruit, train and upskill local employees in due course.

Incentives, Grants & Waivers

With TCI’s ‘open for business’ mentality, various incentives, grants and waivers may be available to eligible investors based on the nature of their business. Invest Turks and Caicos Agency, the country’s primary Investment Promotion Agency, provides a framework for encouraging and prioritising domestic and foreign investments.

Incentives include:

• Alleviation of essential “fixed investment costs” for qualified investments

• Reduced import duties on “fixed investment costs” for qualified investments and new industries
