Jersey has been named International Financial Center (IFC) of the Year at the Citywealth Awards for the third consecutive year.
Judged by an independent panel of experts, the Citywealth IFC Awards were established to highlight expertise and service excellence among private wealth managers and advisers.
Geoff Cook, the CEO of Jersey Finance, the island's financial services promotional agency, said: "It remains important for Jersey to obtain recognition for the quality of its offering as an international finance center and so we are delighted to have once again been named the top jurisdiction in these awards. To have won the award each year since it was introduced is testament to the consistent ability of the jurisdiction to evolve, attract new business from around the world, and introduce new products, while still retaining a strong reputation for the quality of its regulation and for the provision of high quality financial services globally."
RBC Wealth Management was named "Trust Company of the Year – Jersey" and Bedell Cristin won "Law firm of the Year – Jersey."
Last year, Jersey also received Investment Week's Best Fund Administration Center award and WealthBriefing's International Finance Center of the Year, both for the second consecutive year, and also Best International Finance Center at the Professional Adviser International Fund and Product Awards.
