Jersey scoops eighth leading IFC award

Jersey Finance has been recognised as the ‘IFC of the Year’ for private wealth management for the eighth year in a row at the annual Citywealth IFC awards.

The Awards, which were established nine years ago, aim to recognise the expertise and service excellence of advisors and managers in the private wealth sector in major IFCs and are judged by an international panel of practitioners from all sectors.

“We’re incredibly proud that Jersey has been recognised as the leading IFC for another consecutive year," Joe Moynihan, Chief Executive at Jersey Finance, commented. 

"It’s testament to the hard work the industry puts in year-round to ensure we provide a relevant and cutting-edge service offering, to build on our growing international contact base and to maintain a strong and stable platform for our international clients. 

 “As we step into a new chapter of change and opportunity, this should provide a vote of confidence to both our Members and their clients that Jersey is the jurisdiction of choice for complex private wealth management, funds, banking and capital markets expertise.”
