2021 marks 60 years since Jersey’s modern financial services industry put down roots, exporting our financial expertise and intellectual capital to the world, and began its journey into the award-winning international finance centre of 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 the Jersey Charities Awards, held by the Association of Jersey Charities. Keep an eye on this web page to track progress on our fundraising target.
