Jersey offers a comprehensive and robust business and communication infrastructure and is endorsed as a secure and well-regulated international finance centre. The experience and expertise offered by Jersey’s highly skilled financial services professionals and providers, combined with a world-class infrastructure, gives an unparalleled welcome to businesses and investors alike.
Jersey is one of the world's leading International Finance Centres. Reliability, political and economic stability, and sophisticated law have kept Jersey at the forefront of global finance for over 50 years.
Jersey’s robust, modern and sophisticated legal framework is the source and foundation of Jersey’s finance industry. Developments and enhancements are continually being made to ensure flexibility and attractiveness to domestic and international markets.
It is in a central time zone that covers the closing of business in India and Greater China and the opening of business in the USA.
Jersey has a visible financial industry in its capital, St. Helier, and employs a quarter of the local workforce. In over five decades, Jersey has developed a breadth and depth to its range of products and services that competing jurisdictions find difficult to match.
Jersey has been able to deliver the ideal business conditions for international finance bolstered by its unique constitutional position.
Although its allegiance is to the British Crown, it is not a part of the UK. The island’s domestic autonomy has been preserved via charter and convention through 800 years of English history. As a result of that unbroken constitutional position, Jersey proudly possesses its own democratically elected Parliament, which has consistently maintained responsibility for domestic affairs including fiscal matters.
Jersey offers a tax-neutral environment, with no Capital Transfer Tax, Capital Gains Tax, Value Added Tax, Withholding Taxes or Wealth Taxes.
Anti-money laundering regulations
Jersey is fully aligned with the highest standards of the third anti-money laundering (AML) EU Directive and was the first offshore finance centre to become a full signatory to the IOSCO Multilateral Treaty, an international benchmark for cross border co-operation between regulators.
We really believe that our people in Jersey are some of the best in the industry. Hawksford was named a Top 25 Trust Company by ePrivateClient in 2016 and shortlisted twice in the 2016 Citywealth for Trust Company of the Year and Trustee of the Year (Julian Hayden).
