But we can't work in isolation. Our key partners play a crucial role in delivering our success now and in the future. At this critical time in local politics, it is vital that we work collaboratively with government to ensure that the success and continued strong performance of our industry is understood and embraced by those standing for election so that our aims, beliefs and vision remain a key consideration going forward.

That's why we have produced our 'Working together for a better future' document which provides a roadmap of our vision for the industry and the main challenges and opportunities ahead. Because when the industry does well, the island does well. The sustained growth in finance sector jobs, as indicated by the latest Jersey Labour Market statistics reflects clear confidence in Jersey as a forward-thinking jurisdiction.

We are proud of the collaborative relationship we have with industry, the regulator and the Jersey government. Good teamwork creates synergy – where the combined effect of the team is greater than the sum of individual efforts.

It's easy to create teams but more importantly, it is teamwork that makes the difference. This commitment to teamwork and collective responsibility will ensure that together, we can continue to make a positive impact both locally and globally for the future prosperity of our Island.
