Shariah-Compliant Corporate Services

Jersey’s finance industry has an established reputation for corporate structuring, and especially special purpose vehicles (SPVs) used for a variety of purposes, including the acquisition of real estate assets in the UK, Europe and the USA. Shariah scholars have deemed the use of independent SPVs acceptable, enabling Jersey entities to be used successfully to facilitate Sukuk structures.

Jersey-based SPVs have been used in connection with a wide variety of Shariah-compliant capital markets transactions. These have included structures established for the purpose of making off-balance sheet investments and securitising assets.

While all Jersey companies are governed by the provisions of the (Jersey) Companies Law, a company in a Shariah-compliant transaction can usually be incorporated very quickly. In fact, we have an urgent incorporation service that allows a company to be incorporated in less than 24 hours, if all the required information is supplied.
