Jersey Finance has welcomed the announcement from the Channel Islands Stock Exchange (Friday October 18) that it is now in a position to once more consider new listings.

Geoff Cook, CEO, Jersey Finance, commented:

The statement indicates that it is open to new listings, provided they are straightforward structures.  Although for the time being the Exchange is not able to consider listings that are ‘particularly complex or unusual’, the announcement that new listings are being accepted is a welcome development. The move is a positive step which will reassure the Industry that the Exchange is doing all it can to return to a ‘business as usual’ service for international investors as soon as possible.
