The Commission’s key purpose is:

To maintain Jersey’s position as an international finance centre with high regulatory standards by:

  • reducing risk to the public of financial loss due to dishonesty, incompetence, malpractice or the financial unsoundness of financial service providers;
  • protecting and enhancing the reputation and integrity of Jersey in commercial and financial matters;
  • safeguarding the best economic interests of Jersey; and
  • countering financial crime both in Jersey and elsewhere.

In support of our key purpose, the Commission aims to:

  • ensure that all entities that are authorised meet fit and proper criteria;
  • ensure that all regulated entities are operating within accepted standards of good regulatory practice;
  • match international standards in respect of banking, securities, trust company business and insurance regulation,
    and anti-money laundering and terrorist financing defences;
  • identify and deter abuses and breaches of regulatory standards; and
  • ensure the Commission operates effectively and efficiently and is properly accountable to the Chief Minister.
