Gulf Cooperation Council States

The Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) comprises the Gulf States of the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and Kuwait. Jersey Finance have actively focused our business development activities on these countries for over a decade and in 2011 committed to a regional office in the UAE. 

The GCC is experiencing rapid growth as an emerging market and we are continuing to highlight the depth and breadth of the expertise Jersey’s finance industry can offer, particularly in the banking, private wealth management and international finance areas. Additionally there is a growing recognition in the Gulf for the need for substance, sound corporate governance and robust legal jurisdiction, all points where Jersey offers a sustainable advantage.

Primary objectives within these markets are to:

  • Position Jersey as the international finance centre of choice for international financial and professional services - particularly in private wealth, banking and Islamic finance.
  • Uphold Jersey's reputation as a leading international finance centre.


Establishing new links

New opportunities for Jersey firms in the GCC States are particularly significant, so Jersey Finance are continually developing new relationships with relevant bodies for the benefit of Jersey Finances's Gulf focused members.
