International Links

We have over sixty years’ combined experience in dealing with a wide variety of business issues, working with organisations large and small in many parts of the world. Our clients benefit from our global experience combined with our local knowledge. And to help us stay current we maintain links with similar firms elsewhere in the world.

St Helena is a small island, not just geographically but also in the range of business activities here. But despite its physical isolation it remains part of the wider world. Businesses on St Helena cannot ignore what happens outside the island, as the fuel price changes in 2008 amply demonstrated. To ensure that we can provide our clients with the best possible assistance we maintain links and share experiences with firms elsewhere in the world, whose different views on issues can help inform our work here. And the perspective of St Helena can be useful elsewhere. In business it can sometimes be easier to see the underlying issues in a situation that is smaller and less complex.

Please go here to see the list of International Links.

Please note that we do not pass any information to other firms that could identify clients or reveal any of their business secrets.

SH Images Burgh House About Burgh House

St Helena is a small island in the South-eastern Atlantic Ocean at 15°55’24.3”S; 5°43’3.5”W{1}, around 1,900Km west of the Angola/Namibia border.

Discovered in 1502 and with a population of under 5,000 people this British Overseas Territory is one of the world’s most isolated islands; a paradise for the visitor. In its 16 by 8 kilometres, or 121 km² it has remarkable scenery, warm friendly people, fascinating wildlife much of it found nowhere else in the world, heritage going back to the 17th Century, and so much more…

For its first 500 years the only way to reach St Helena was by ship, but now you can fly to the island from South Africa, stay in a variety of accommodations and have a holiday you will never forget. Swim with dolphins and whalesharks; climb the 699 steps of Jacob’s Ladder; dive our warm, clear seas; and hike where you will not see another soul (and did we mention the spectacular scenery?) You can even get married here!

It’s better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times
