Jersey has been crowned "Best International Finance Center" at the recent WealthBriefingAsia Hong Kong Awards 2016.
The awards, now in their third year, recognize and celebrate excellence within the Asian wealth management sector. Designed to showcase "best of breed" providers in the global private banking, wealth management, and trusted adviser communities, the awards highlight those who have best demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2015.
Commenting on Jersey's success, Geoff Cook, CEO of Jersey Finance, said: "It is an honor to have been recognized at WealthBriefingAsia's Hong Kong Awards 2016, which is yet another testament to the hard work Jersey has put in over the past 12 months. Jersey has not only continued to innovate and attract new business, but has also demonstrated its ability to respond quickly and appropriately in a rapidly shifting global market. This prestigious award cements the fact that Jersey remains a leading jurisdiction globally in terms of transparency and countering financial crime."
The CEO of ClearView Financial Media, the publisher of WealthBriefingAsia, Stephen Harris, commented: "Jersey's change of perpetuity period was a positive aspect in the judges' assessment, as well as its strength as an offshore jurisdiction. Jersey's foresight on the transparency measures taken as part of its standard jurisdictional regulations also attracted warm approval."
