Jersey has been at the forefront of the global finance industry for over 50 years and is acknowledged as one of the world’s leading international finance centres for banking, investment funds, capital markets and private wealth.
The Island enjoys economic stability, political independence, tax neutrality and sophisticated legal, regulatory and technological infrastructure. It has a global reputation founded on a robust legal framework and sound corporate governance practices.
In 2016 the FATF confirmed that Jersey is compliant or largely compliant with 48/49 of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendations in respect to anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism. In 2017 Standard & Poor’s confirmed Jersey’s credit as AA-, one of the highest possible ratings.
Jersey's evolution as an international finance centre is founded on its close ties to the City of London and its growth as a jurisdiction of choice in the European as well as Middle Eastern, North American and Asian markets.
