|Why is Global Prime migrating clients from Vanuatu to Seychelles?||
Global Prime has been providing services to clients through its Seychelles entity since December 2020 and this now accounts for the majority of new and active clients.

The migration also allows us to simplify and streamline our operations, therefore providing a better and more seamless service to our clients.
