Jersey Named Best IFC at Fund Awards

October 20, 2016

Jersey has been named ‘Best International Finance Centre’ at the International Fund & Product Awards in London.

Held at the prestigious Four Seasons, Park Lane, London on Wednesday 12 October, the awards recognise and celebrate excellence across the industry, including asset managers, life companies, private banks, discretionary fund managers and wealth managers and distribute financial products and services internationally.

Jersey’s credentials as one of the world’s leading international finance centres were once again underlined, as the island was selected by the panel of judges above other shortlisted jurisdictions, including Isle of Man and Malta.

The awards, now in their 17th year, also marked a return to centre stage of the global financial services industry by international investment, who hosted the event. This year’s awards also saw a record number of submissions, as well as attendees on the evening.

Geoff Cook, CEO of Jersey Finance said “Jersey’s recognition in these awards further reflects the Island’s consistent ability to adapt and evolve through a rapidly shifting global financial landscape. We are delighted to receive this award and would like to thank the judges and our business partners for their help in positioning Jersey as the gold standard in international finance centres.”

Nick Rapley, Chief Executive at Open Door Media Publishing, said: “Like these awards, International Investment exists to champion all that is good about the industry. We like to make heroes of those product providers and advisers who demonstrate best practice, who seek to raise standards and who put their customers first.”
