Asset management relocation

Relocate to Jersey - A centre of excellence for alternative asset management that feels like home

At a time of increased regulatory pressures across the globe, Jersey’s finance industry continues to attract quality business and individuals to the Island. Jersey has an appropriate and robust regulatory environment, providing legal certainty for investors and safekeeping of investor assets. The Island authorities are keen to support the growth of alternative asset managers establishing a physical presence with substance in Jersey.

The industry as a whole has grown to an estimated US$346.5 billion and US$396.6 billion of fund assets serviced in Guernsey increased to US$412.0bn and US$481.2bn in Jersey at the end of June 2019. To achieve this level of growth, the Channel Islands have built a reputation for high quality knowledge and expertise in the alternative investment market and the islands have become alternative investment centres of excellence. The Jersey and Guernsey investment management industry bodies and regulators work closely together to create legislative frameworks that enable the promoters of offshore structures to meet the evolving needs and demands of investors in a timely manner.

The PwC Channel Islands firm has a team of almost 400 staff providing assurance, tax, and advisory services. In both Jersey and Guernsey, PwC continues to retain the leading position as the largest auditor of Jersey/Guernsey serviced funds in 2019, with 35% market share of funds in Jersey and Guernsey respectively.
