The sustainable finance spectrum ranges from negative screening (where the primary focus is to achieve a financial return, while also making a positive impact) to impact investing (where the primary focus is to achieve a positive impact, while also making a financial return).
Jersey has been active in this vital area for some time. Sustainable finance, and particularly impact investing, is experiencing strong growth globally.
From a private wealth perspective, inter-generational wealth transfers are fuelling this growth. We’re ready and well positioned to accommodate this ongoing expansion, with our investment advisors and family offices developing their offerings to meet demand.
In the funds sector, fund managers are reviewing their products, domiciles and fund administration solutions in line with the critical success factors demanded by sustainable investing. This is creating clear opportunities for Jersey.
Put simply, we are certain that we have the solid foundations with which to support businesses and investors with their sustainable finance goals.
If you look at Jersey’s credentials, it’s clear that the Island meets every one of these criteria. These credentials, coupled with case studies from Jersey-based service providers and local organisations, show why Jersey is the clear choice for sustainable finance.
