About Us

The Jersey Bankers Association (JBA) was initially formed in response to a need for the banking industry to work more closely together and to consult with the government and regulatory authorities of Jersey on a variety of industry matters that could have a significant bearing on banking business in the Island and its development.

Members are diverse and include British clearing banks, merchant banks, private banks and a range of international banking groups.  Some managed banks and trust departments of banking organisations are also included in the membership.  This extensive pool of expertise enables the JBA to maintain an effective dialogue and consultation with the Jersey Financial Services Commission, Jersey Finance Limited and the Government of Jersey on the needs of the banking industry and, in so doing, helps the industry remain competitive both locally and internationally.

Through the work of various committees, the JBA acts as a consultative body on a wide range of issues including regulation, legislation, tax, risk and product development.

The JBA also works closely with Jersey Finance Limited and other professional bodies to ensure training courses and recognised qualifications are in place to underpin the infrastructure of the banking industry and to support its growth.  The link to the Jersey Finance Limited website follows:
