BANKING: FINANCIAL REPORTING AND DISCLOSURES

The Commission has published today a consultation paper on the regulatory requirements for Jersey registered deposit takers in respect of the provision of financial information and public disclosures. The aims are to:

  • bring together existing requirements regarding the provision of financial information to the Commission;
  • increase the availability of financial information on banks to the public, including via their websites; and
  • require that disclosures regarding relevant depositor compensation schemes are made in banks’ advertisements.

The consultation period will run until 19 May 2010 and feedback is welcomed from all interested parties.

A copy of the consultation paper can be downloaded from the Commission’s Website at www.jerseyfsc.org and paper copies obtained from the Commission’s reception area of the Jersey Library.
