What Jersey-based family offices say about Jersey

Principal of Family C: “Jersey is the ideal location to run a philanthropic family office as we use the Island’s strength as an international financial centre of excellence to attract investors and help people in need.”



Global Head of Governance for Family A: “The confirmation by ECOFIN* that Jersey is a co-operative jurisdiction vindicates our decision to come here.”

*On 12 March 2019, EU Finance Ministers (ECOFIN) formally confirmed Jersey’s position as a cooperative jurisdiction following an extended period of screening.

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.
