Our forward-thinking approach

Our forward-thinking approach means we’re always ready to provide meaningful support. Here’s why:

A clear and transparent regulatory regime

Because companies are able to list in London through Jersey, they gain access to our shared culture of strong regulation.

Better insurance

In 2006, Jersey became the first jurisdiction to incorporate cell companies together with enhanced versions of traditional protected cell companies. Jersey can also offer ‘pure’ captive insurance companies for more traditional self-insurance arrangements, to benefit larger entities.

Bespoke products and services

Jersey has a team of world-class lawyers, accountants, bankers, and other professionals, who all work together to create focussed and tailored services. Thanks to this work, Jersey has been recognised as one of the most vital European centres for creating employee share plans.

Forward-thinking company law

New regulations in 2011 simplified the process of merging Jersey companies with overseas companies. Additionally, our listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2009, together with our partnership working with stakeholders in the City of London, make our Island appealing for corporate work. For example, these factors allow Jersey to be used as a renminbi centre for renminbi bonds issuance.

The International Stock Exchange (TISE)

TISE is an innovative listing and trading facility for companies to raise capital from investors around the world. It’s convenient and cost-effective, and benefits everyone. In 2018, for example, there were 865 new listings on TISE – an increase of 23% year-on-year.

Our people

Both locally and further afield, Jersey’s finance industry is made up of world-class professionals. Their expertise and experience allow us to support complex cross-border capital market transactions. Put simply, our focus makes us the clear partner of choice for international business.
