Most Offshore centres have seen their ratings improve since GFCI 14 but most have experienced a decline in their position relative to other financial centres; several losing more than ten places. Jersey retained its rating from GFCI 14 but was overtaken by 13 other centres and fell from 28th to 41st place. It nonetheless retained the top spot in the Offshore group because Guernsey also lost six places to 42nd while the Cayman Islands lost four places to 43rd.

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) entered the Top Five Offshore centres moving up four places. Mauritius saw a rise of 40 points in the ratings and five places to 63rd, and The Bahamas improved by 35 points and two places to 65th.
