Jersey - the International Financial Centre
Jersey's successful role as an international financial centre for more than 40 years is largely due to its ability to maintain a stable and high quality business environment, which is an important factor to international investors.
The Jersey Financial Services Commission, an independent body, is responsible for the administration of laws relating to the industry. It is also responsible for the development of the financial services industry on the island. Most of Jersey's working population are professionally trained and work in the finance and support industries. The availability of internationally recognised accountancy and legal experts ensures smooth and professional handling of business.
An increasing number of clients worldwide choose Jersey as a preferred location mainly because it has retained a reputation for its integrity while evolving to cater to the growing needs of global finance.
