Responses to the consultation

In all, two individual responses were initially received by the Economic Development Department, one from Appleby and one from the Association of Investment Companies. One further combined response was also received from five Jersey Law firms:

  • Bedell Cristin
  • Carey Olsen
  • Mourant Ozannes
  • Ogier
  • Voisin
Comments were also received from the Funds Division of the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) and the Deputy Registrar of Companies.
In addition to the public responses, the Economic Development Department commissioned two external reports (one from a practising UK barrister and one from a Professor of Law and Finance at the University of Oxford).
The responses and reports are analysed in the consultation response paper.
The response paper noted that the responses received had raised a number of issues which required further reflection and consultation before a final decision was made regarding how to proceed with the proposed amendments.
After further consulation a supplemental response paper was produced.
