We all have a role to play in ensuring that Jersey supports the global transition to a more environmentally and socially sustainable future. That is the purpose that drives Jersey’s ten-year strategy for sustainable finance.

Jersey Finance has placed capacity building at the heart of that strategy, recognising that upskilling and technical expertise are foundational to our success as a sustainable finance centre in line with the 2030 Vision laid out in Jersey For Good – A Sustainable Future.

Our two-year strong-start action plan for the strategy, Jersey’s Pathway to Success, calls on Jersey Finance to promote awareness and availability of existing guidance materials and training resources available to its Members, as well as identifying any skills gaps across the different sectors and working with providers to address these.

This is why Jersey Finance is now pleased to partner with CISI to offer our Members discounted access to the CISI Sustainable and Responsible Investment Professional Assessment. This course is designed to give professionals from across different financial services areas and functions a solid grounding in the concepts and terminology that are key to meeting client requirements in a changing world. The course is accredited for 6 hours of CPD and delivered online. Members can find out more and take advantage of this discounted rate using the flyer below.

But we also recognise that this course is only one of a range of professional training options available to members. While Jersey Finance does not endorse any particular course or provider, to help make sense of that broad offering, we have gathered together a training matrix resource based on the research into skills which we carried out with the help of industry in the course of Q2 2021.

This resource below is not exhaustive and the range of training on offer is constantly evolving. Prices and other course details are purely indicative and subject to change. If you have any comments, suggestions or would like to share your experience of any of these courses, please do not hesitate to contact David Postlethwaite, Jersey Finance’s Sustainable Finance Lead.
