In the last 12months, Jersey has been judged: ‘Best offshore Centre’ at the Global Investor/ISF Awards 2013, ‘Best in Class for Fund Services’ at the International Fund & Product Awards 2013, ‘International Financial Centre of the Year’ at the inaugural Wealthbriefing European Awards 2013, ‘International Financial Centre of the Year’ at the Citywealth International Financial Centre Awards 2013 and 'Best Fund Service Centre' at Investment Week's Fund Services Awards 2013.

Commenting on the success, Crestbridge CEO, Graeme McArthur, said:
