Jersey's finance industry has further enhanced its reputation, winning 'Best International Finance Centre' at the International Fund and Products Awards 2010 this week.
The results of the Awards, which are recognised as a key event in the field of international finance, were announced on Tuesday 15th June. Consisting of a range of categories, they feature leading financial organisations and providers based in the UK and international financial centres including Guernsey, Isle of Man, Dublin and Luxembourg, as well as Jersey.
The International Fund and Product awards have been held annually for 11 years and are judged by a panel of eight senior investment experts and advisers in the UK. The judges' decision to select Jersey for this Award was based on the quality of its funds offering as well as its reputation on the international scene and its robust legislative and regulatory framework.
Geoff Cook commented:
"This latest endorsement for Jersey's finance industry reinforces the excellent work that is conducted in Jersey, the UK and internationally, not just in the investment fund area but right across the range of financial services sectors Jersey excels in. Jersey has consistently ranked favourably in a number of influential independent indexes and we look forward to building on this performance in the coming months and years."
