We are an independent, leading provider of bespoke private wealth and corporate administration services to companies, individuals, and families across the world.
Established in 1983, we employ around 120 staff in Guernsey and over 400 globally.
We inspire our people to be their best, developing an environment that nurtures personal growth and empowers them to deliver market-leading client services.
We are committed to giving our people the opportunity to learn and develop so they reach their full potential and in turn achieve their own personal goals. We don’t just look at the here and now but also look ahead to identify and develop our future leaders.
We’re proud to support our island community through our long involvement in sport, cultural events, and charities. We support amateur men’s, ladies, and youth sport on the island through our long-term sponsorship of rugby, netball and basketball.
What made you want to be a lead sponsor for the Guernsey 2023 Games?
Praxis and the Games have much in common. With more than half of our 400 global employees working in Island Games member islands, we too are very much part of our community.
Over the past 50 years we’ve supported a diverse range of member sports across the Channel Islands, with basketball, cycling and football all benefitting from our sponsorship. Outside of the Games, Praxis’ sponsorship of cricket, netball and rugby has seen hundreds of islanders enjoy grassroots sport.
Sport exemplifies many admirable values including team building, equality, inclusion, perseverance, and respect, all of which we aspire to at Praxis. With the 2023 Games’ motto of ‘Inspiring Islanders’ mirroring one of our own values our shared ethos means we are delighted to support it.
What are you looking forward to most about the Games in July?
There’s so much to look forward to it’s difficult to pick out one thing in particular. The atmosphere during Games week will be incredible, with the whole island coming together as a community to support our competitors making it one of those unforgettable experiences.
We're very much looking forward to seeing our colleagues take part – from our IT team Jason Le Page will be hoping to add to his silver archery medal in Gotland as he takes part in his fourth Games. We also have several of the Praxis team volunteering across football, sailing and with logistics.
Finally, the prospect of watching Alastair Chalmers compete on home soil in the 400m hurdles is one which I along with hundreds of his supporters can’t wait for. Praxis has supported Ala since 2018 and we’re so proud of the progress he’s made in his athletics career so far – we wish him and all the other Guernsey competitors all the best for these Games.
