Our office locations include the key international jurisdictions of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Mauritius, and the Seychelles, as well as the international financial centres of Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Appleby is passionate about supporting community initiatives. We are actively committed to each of the communities in which our offices are based through a range of projects and sponsorships. Rather than passively providing financial assistance, we are very involved with projects, often from their inception, with our people giving up their time to volunteer and participate with our partner organisations and across a range of activities.
A Global Approach
In each of our locations, we have taken time to identify community partners with whom we can make a positive, enduring impact and develop long-term relationships. We have worked with local organisations to select a range of projects providing support in education, sports development, the environment, the arts and for disadvantaged groups.
Our projects aim to:
- Encourage community spirit and inclusivity across all age groups and sectors of the community;
- Embody the values and spirit of fairness, equality, open communication, teamwork and good sportsmanship;
- Encourage the development of skills and talent; and
- Provide opportunities for our staff to be actively involved in the projects we support.
