Brunei Darussalam or Brunei is rapidly becoming an alternative jurisdiction for international businesses. This is in part due to the fact that it is strategically located in the heart of Southeast Asia and is within easy reach of premier financial services centres in the region such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Being a former British protectorate, Brunei’s judiciary system is based on the English Common Law, thus making it a familiar turf for global players. The sultanate has always been known as one of the wealthiest nations in the world due to its vast hydrocarbon resources. With a population of approximately 415,000, its people enjoy a standard of living that is among the highest in the world in terms of per capita GDP.

Brunei provides a "dual jurisdiction" registry system. It offers through its International Financial Centre a range of additional corporate entities to facilitate international businesses at highly competitive cost levels for international companies, trust and company management, banking, insurance, collective investment schemes and fund management activities.
