Reporting ESG Data
The drive to standardise sustainability reporting presents our industry with a number of opportunities and challenges, particularly in its fund sector. Recommendations by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) are encouraging firms to focus on governance, strategy, risk management and metrics and targets as they look at how they can put new disclosure requirements into practice.
In Jersey, service providers such as Apex and IQEQ are developing fund solutions that use the latest technology to collect, evaluate and report ESG data. These solutions are seeing strong take-up by managers who are keen to meet the growing demand for transparency from investors and to streamline regulatory compliance under emerging frameworks such as the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulations (SFDR).Discover more
Sustainability and Corporate Services Resources
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 of the island’s 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.Discover More
