As part of Jersey's ongoing work to prevent financial crime, the Island has undertaken a risk assessment for money laundering.
This assessment is an accumulation of work from the JFSC, the Government of Jersey, the States of Jersey Police, the Law Officers’ Department and numerous professionals across the finance industry.
The assessment documents the potential risks, threats and vulnerabilities that Jersey faces as an international finance centre. It is a critical exercise for any jurisdiction to undertake so that we understand where the risks lie and can take action to mitigate those risks accordingly. The report does not cover terrorist financing, which will be a separate exercise in 2021.
The assessment has documented what we already recognise to be potential risks, threats and vulnerabilities, and we are already focusing our resources in these areas. We have already achieved a lot over the past few years to enhance our capabilities for fighting financial crime and come from a position of strength with well-established regulation in place to reduce the risk of money laundering and terrorist financing.
