Fintech and Regtech

Given Jersey’s position as a world-class finance centre and its rapid adoption of digital innovations including financial technology, it’s no surprise that the Island’s Fintech and Regtech sectors are rapidly developing.

Fintech and Regtech are a natural fit for Jersey given the island’s small scale, contained environment and robust regulatory setting. The wealth of experience and expertise offered by Jersey’s highly-skilled financial service providers, combined with a world-class infrastructure and flexible approach, offers an unparalleled welcome to Regtech and Fintech companies and investors alike.

Groundwork has already been laid for virtual currency, with legislation being lodged in June 2016, which will come into effect imminently. Plus, the regtech sector is equally well supported in Jersey, with significant engagement from both the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) and the Registrar.

Our Role

In collaboration with Jersey Finance, Digital Jersey brings together individuals from both the finance and digital sectors to foster an open dialogue about the future of financial services.
