Dara GI Award July 2010Jersey’s Finance Industry has scooped another award as the top jurisdiction, this time from Global Investor magazine, one of the flagship titles published by Euromoney Institutional Investor plc.

Head of Marketing for Jersey Finance, Dara Lutes, attended the awards ceremony on Thursday evening (July 8) at the Hotel Russell in London and received the award from the editor of the magazine, Craig Macdonald, who hosted the event. 
The award for Best Offshore Centre was judged by the editorial team of the magazine and was one of a number handed out to leading lawyers, bankers and investment professionals during the evening. The Global Investor awards are in their tenth year.
In the last year Jersey was named Best International Finance Centre in the International Fund & Product Awards and also secured the accolade of International Finance Centre of the Year in the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP) Private Client Awards. Dara Lutes commented:
‘Jersey Finance is delighted to accept this award on behalf of the Industry. This is further acknowledgement that Jersey meets the highest standards of corporate governance, and that we are committed to developing new products, and evolving our laws and regulations to meet international investor demand. The series of awards Jersey has won recently is testament to the fact that we have emerged with an even stronger reputation since the financial crisis.’
