Jersey Wins Best IFC at The WealthBriefingAsia Awards 2019
Jersey has, for the second consecutive year, been crowned ‘Best International Finance Centre’ at the annual WealthBriefingAsia Awards, once again demonstrating its credentials as one of the world’s leading and forward-thinking international finance centres (IFCs).
The awards, now in their seventh year, were held last night (Thursday 30 May) at the Westin Singapore. Showcasing innovation and excellence in 2018/2019, the awards recognise jurisdictions, companies and individuals across the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities.
Commenting on Jersey’s winning entry, the panel of judges said:
“Jersey has made a recent series of legislative enhancements that have further enhanced its reputation for global philanthropy, private wealth and investment activity. The jurisdiction has also made great strides in defining its ambitions within the fintech sector.”
Jersey’s success at this year’s awards coincides with Jersey Finance celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the opening of its Hong Kong office in November.
Joe Moynihan, Chief Executive of Jersey Finance, commented:
“We have had a long and positive history in Asia, successfully promoting Jersey’s credibility as a leading IFC in Greater China since 2005. This award, along with the 10-year anniversary of our Hong Kong office, is testament to the Island’s ongoing commitment to supporting the current and future needs of investors in the region.”
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefingAsia, Stephen Harris, extending his congratulations to all the winners, said:
“The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my congratulations. These awards recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process – such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management.”
