Following the publication of the latest Business Tendency Survey, Jersey Finance has issued the below statement.

Commenting on the Business Tendency survey for the first quarter of 2016, Geoff Cook, CEO, said: “Overall, the latest indicators in this survey for the finance industry paint a largely unchanged, stable and sustained picture. Importantly, however, it is pleasing that the industry is reporting strong business flows, with more than 90% of finance firms seeing the same or greater levels of business compared to the previous three months, whilst new business is at the highest level for the past two years.

“In addition, around one third of businesses anticipate an increase in future business flows and one fifth of firms expect job growth this year, which is positive for the local economy and sends out a strong message to the international community about the confidence there is in Jersey.”
