2021 marks 60 years since Jersey’s modern financial services industry put down roots, exporting its financial expertise and intellectual capital to the world, and began its journey towards becoming the award-winning international finance centre it is today. This year is also Jersey Finance’s 20th anniversary.
To celebrate our industry milestone, we’re encouraging the finance industry on-Island to work with us to reach our fundraising goal to raise £60,000 by the end of the year. Proceeds will support local charities via the Association of Jersey Charities. Keep an eye on this web page to track progress on our fundraising target.

The Association of Jersey Charities was founded in 1971, and supports and represents charities in Jersey . The idea of setting up the Association of Jersey Charities came from a dinner conversation between Sir Billy Butlin, Deputy Cyril Tanguy, and Lord Louis Mountbatten, early in 1971. Deputy Cyril Tanguy was elected the first chairman, Daphne Minihane MBE was elected the first treasurer, and Stuart White was elected the first secretary. Read more.visit website
