Jersey has won ‘Best International Finance Centre’ for the sixth year in a row in the Annual WealthBriefing MENA Awards for Excellence 2022.

The winners were selected by a panel of expert judges and were announced at a gala dinner held yesterday evening (23 November) in Dubai, at the Address Dubai Mall hotel. The award was collected by Faizal Bhana, Jersey Finance’s Director for Middle East, Africa and India.

The awards, now in their ninth year, are designed to celebrate top class performance, innovation, and achievement. Companies, teams, and individuals demonstrating excellence in serving the Middle East and North Africa market have been recognised across a number of awards categories.

This recognition in the awards follows last month’s flagship Dubai Private Wealth Conference held by Jersey Finance. The event was themed around the changing landscape for family businesses, governance, and succession in the GCC, and drew a full house of professionals and key players from the private wealth community.

Commenting on the achievement, Joe Moynihan, Chief Executive Officer, Jersey Finance, said:

“It’s an honour for Jersey to be recognised once again as the leading International Finance Centre serving the needs of MENA investors. This award recognises the excellent service Jersey Finance and professional service firms continue to provide to clients in the region. We are proud to have built significant ties and valuable relationships with the region, underpinned by the stability, high regulatory standards, and compelling commercial environment that Jersey has to offer.

“We recently marked the importance of Jersey’s relationship with the GCC through our Private Wealth Conference in Dubai, a fantastic event where a number of expert speakers shared their insights into key topics for the Gulf region. Looking to the future, we will continue to build on this work and to evolve our proposition for the region in order to further establish ourselves as a jurisdiction of choice for MENA wealth management.”
