Jersey’s next Election will take place on Wednesday 22 June 2022. As we approach this pivotal date in our Island’s calendar, Jersey Finance, on behalf of the finance industry, has published our vision for a forward-thinking partnership.
The finance industry’s close working relationship with the States Assembly has been very successful over the years, with a collaborative approach and shared ambitions that have helped maintain Jersey’s position as an award-winning international finance centre. To ensure that the next Assembly offers its crucial support, it is essential that both voters and those standing for election recognise and appreciate the role of the finance industry in Jersey’s future success for all Islanders.
From economic growth and employment to connectivity and community support, the finance industry makes a significant contribution to the prosperity and wellbeing of our island. Its value to Jersey is clear.

Our manifesto outlines the clear actions we call upon the next Assembly to take in these key areas:
- driving vital innovation
- making the right connections
- taking a clear path to sustainability
- projecting a positive image
- providing stability and certainty
- focussing on health and wellbeing
- supporting access to talent
- developing skills for the future
- maintaining our reputation as an award-winning jurisdiction
- working together on tax and transparency
Our requests are not in isolation, nor are they self-centred – the ripple effect of the industry’s positive impact can be found in every corner of the Island, for the entire community to enjoy; great opportunities, more funding for public services and an infrastructure that makes Jersey one of the best places in the world to live and work.
To ensure the growth of our industry as part of the wider strategic vision for economic prosperity, we’re ready to meet both the known and unknown challenges ahead. With an Assembly that provides the right support, Jersey’s reputation as one of the world’s most stable and successful international finance centres will stand firm for decades to come.
