Figures from the LSE showed that at the end of December Guernsey had 80 more companies than the States.

Fiona Le Poidevin, Chief Executive of Guernsey Finance, said: "Guernsey is the clear market leader."

"Our infrastructure and expertise is held highly by professional advisers in the City of London and beyond," she added.

Guernsey can boast 117 organisations listed on the Main Market, the Alternative Investment Market and the Specialist Fund Market.

It means it has significantly more than the major economic powers of the US (35), Australia and Russia (both 30), India (29), South Africa (8), Germany (6), China (4) and France (3).

It was also well ahead of competitor centres Jersey (88), Ireland and the Isle of Man (both 51), Cayman (50), Bermuda (45) and BVI (42).

These are trailed by Luxembourg (11), Singapore (6), Gibraltar (5), Hong Kong (3) and Malta (1).
