Guernsey, Ireland and the Isle of Man remain popular QROPS jurisdictions, with the countries having 143, 91 and 218 QROPS respectively. Other popular jurisdictions are Canada (60) and Germany (30). France has 12 recognised QROPS schemes.
HMRC usually publishes its QROPS list on a bi-monthly basis. However, although it lists the number of new and delisted schemes in each country, it does not report details of the numbers of people choosing to invest in each scheme, nor does it detail the individual, total or average figures invested.
The QROPS list is important because it allows retirement savers to be sure that schemes meet the HMRC criteria.
