Run as a not-for-profit organisation, Jersey Finance was formed in 2001 to represent and promote Jersey as an international financial center of excellence. It has offices in Jersey (Channel Islands), Hong Kong and Dubai, along with representation in London and Shanghai.
With a finance industry that has evolved over 50 years, Jersey has developed a leading funds sector that offers a range of fund regimes, from regulated options through to the more sophisticated and institutional end of the market. Offering a high level of experienced practitioners, political, economic and fiscal stability and an appropriate level of regulation and security, the jurisdiction appeals to international investors and businesses alike.
Jersey’s fund industry continues to perform strongly, with the total value of funds being serviced through Jersey rising by 15% over the year to stand at US$335bn, the highest value ever recorded. This growth was driven by the alternative asset classes, which increased annually by the same proportion to US$243.8bn, representing almost three quarters of Jersey’s total funds’ activity. Within the alternative asset classes, private equity fund values rose by almost 30% to stand at US$77bn.
