“We chose Jersey as a preferred international finance centre because our trusted advisers recommended it. Our lawyer spoke highly of the solutions, services and professionals on the Island. Other administrators, lawyers and bankers to whom we spoke made a similar recommendation. The community of professionals who support the business of international clients is broad and well-established.”

In recent years, we’ve worked with the British Embassy in Riyadh and the British Consulate in Jeddah to host annual receptions to raise further awareness and provide opportunities to engage with Jersey practitioners. In 2018, in partnership with the Department for International Trade, Jersey hosted an educational event in Riyadh exclusively for women. This was organised in response to an increasing appetite for financial knowledge by female attendees at previous events, and the growing number of female Jersey practitioners now assisting clients in the Kingdom. With unprecedented registration, the event was heavily oversubscribed and feedback from attendees was unequivocally positive.
We’re proud to be developing a library of evidence-based research on international finance, which has grown over the years. Recently, we commissioned Jeddah-based law firm Hammad & Al-Mehdar to examine the important factors considered by both the Kingdom’s inbound and outbound investors and the various structuring approaches that are sought.
