The Jersey Association of Trust Companies (JATCo) is an organisation that represents the majority of trust companies in the Island of Jersey, Channel Islands. It has over 50 member firms, which employ an estimated 4,000 people locally. Its members, and those employed by them, contribute a significant percentage of the Island’s annual tax revenues.
JATCo is a proactive organisation, which represents its members’ interests to government and financial services regulators. It also runs an educational programme to enable decision makers and opinion formers (both locally and further afield) to have critical information upon which to make decisions affecting the Island’s trust industry. JATCo canvasses its members’ opinions and informs members about developments within the industry be they technical, regulatory or of a practical nature. Items of interest and education are regularly posted on the Association’s web site. It represents members on various industry, regulatory and governmental working parties making minutes of such working parties available to members wherever possible.
Licensing by the Jersey Financial Services Commission, or transitional status in anticipation of licensing, is a prerequisite of membership. For more information about joining JATCo please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07797 842073.
JATCo’s members range from small locally owned trust companies to large multinational financial services providers.
