About Us

The Burnbrae Group was first established on the Isle of Man in 1994. Utilising the vision of our founder and beneficiary, Jim Mellon, we seek out opportunistic investments and capitalise on fundamental global emerging trends. Our interests are now represented throughout the world. Since inception, the Burnbrae Group has maintained close ties with the Isle of Man Government, its representatives and a core team of professional advisors. This symbiotic relationship has provided the Group with a stable, highly flexible legal and financial regulatory framework within which to grow. Through its subsidiaries, the Group has grown today to be one of the largest private employers in the Isle of Man. Our philosophy is centred on an activist investment approach to create and hold great businesses. By focusing on clearly identifiable trends, our success is sure set to continue well in to the future.

Isle of Man

The Burnbrae Group's head office is centred in Douglas on the Isle of Man, with our European office based in Berlin. The Island headquarters offers a highly efficient environment in which to do business, not just because of its service providers and competitive tax regime but also due to its proximity to the United Kingdom, and hence into the European Union and beyond.

The Isle of Man's Government focuses on encouraging economic growth through a carefully planned legislative framework. Over recent years, it has become one of Europe's premier offshore financial centres. As a result the Island has attracted top tier professional firms and banks capable of catering for the full spectrum of the business community. A number of Group holdings are also based on the island.
