Our legal framework provides vital support to our finance industry, making sure that we stay flexible and attractive for domestic and international markets.

Jersey offers choice. It has a robust, sophisticated and forward-thinking legal framework that enables it to lead the way in delivering private client services – from simple trusts and underlying company structures, to high value and more complex arrangements involving trusts, companies, limited partnerships and foundations for international families.

The stability and quality of Jersey’s trust law, a template adopted by many other jurisdictions worldwide, remains highly attractive to international private wealth clients, including those focussed on philanthropic and socially responsible wealth management.

Quote from a Jersey-based family office

Principal of Family D: “We did not choose Jersey as a jurisdiction for tax reasons. Instead, we wanted reassurance that we would be able to preserve the foundation’s wealth and make sure the assets are protected.”

Over the last decade, Jersey has seen a significant increase in the number of family offices, not only establishing on-Island, but also migrating to Jersey from other jurisdictions.

To help us better understand the mindset of today’s family office, we worked closely with some local family offices to listen to their personal experiences and to understand the rational behind establishing their businesses in Jersey as a leading international finance centre.
