Close Brothers Group is considering offloading its Channel Islands businesses and has taken on Deloitte to explore a possible sale, according to sources.
The businesses include fund management, administration, nominee, secretarial and qualifying overseas recognised pension scheme units spread across Jersey and Guernsey.
The group also offers personal and secured loans to Channel Islands residents.
In May 2009 it said it was selling its corporate finance business to Daiwa Securities SMBC.
Close refused to comment.
