China

The first Chinese company registered in Jersey in 1994, since then China’s economy has nearly quadrupled in value. To date, one third of the Chinese companies that have listed in London have done so through Jersey.

Jersey Finance have been actively promoting the opportunities for Jersey’s finance industry in China since November 2005 and opened a representative office in Hong Kong in October 2009. 

 

 

Working in Partnership

Opportunities in China extend throughout the financial and professional services sectors, offering scope to promote Jersey's finance industry as the:

  • offshore jurisdiction of choice for Chinese investment; and

  • uphold Jersey's reputation as a leading International Finance Centre 

Jersey remains well placed to provide the investment vehicles to conduit international capital into China for the infrastructure projects it undertakes, and we continue to communicate that through our intergrated BD strategy. 

The Jersey company structure is widely recognised and often used as the listing vehicle of choice for international companies raising funds on the London and Hong Kong Stock Exchanges. Coupled with the private wealth structuring offered by Jersey professionals that can assist in pre-IPO planning, Jersey is a compelling choice for the international investor. 

 

Building relationships

Jersey signed a Tax Information Exchange Agreement with China in October 2010 and a DTA with Hong Kong in February 2012. We continue to supplement our permanent presence in Hong Kong and we undertake regular business trips to enhance our relationships and contacts in the region.
