By Ashley Le Feuvre, Senior Manager Funds/SPV Group, Volaw Trust & Corporate Services Limited – Jersey is an international finance centre for a range of financial services including fund administration. Businesses are attracted to Jersey by the Island’s stable government, its proximity to both the UK and continental Europe, the significant expertise developed by the industry in a wide range of financial services and a competitive, co-operative and well-regulated tax environment. Jersey is a parliamentary democracy that is a dependency of the British Crown. It is a British Island, but is not part of the United Kingdom, nor is it a colony. »
