About Jersey

Jersey, at 45 square miles (118 square km) in size, is the largest of the British Channel Islands. The Island is located 85 miles (135 km) south of mainland Britain and 14 miles (22 km) from the coast of France.

The population of 95,000 includes some 13,000 professionals working within finance and support industries.

The jurisdiction’s main language is English. but most European languages are spoken.  Jersey prides itself as having been politically stable for 800 years (albeit with a brief interlude during the Nazi occupation during WWII).  Jersey has its own elected government and independent judiciary and legal system.

Commerce is conducted in pounds sterling, but all major currencies are accepted for financial transactions.

Jersey’s status as a Crown Dependency, with its special relationship with the United Kingdom and the European Union, makes Jersey a special part of the United Kingdon but with a European ambiance.  This offers businesses and investors the benefits of an independent international finance centre which is close to the United Kingdom and mainland Europe.
