By combining industry leading systems with VG’s in-house expertise, we continue to innovate and grow – providing a fast, flexible and responsive service of the highest quality to clients whilst operating within Jersey’s robust regulatory and legislative framework.

This is proof that Jersey offers an attractive proposition to alternative fund promoters and, as an independent and privately-owned service provider, we are in a terrific position to take advantage of this momentum in the market.
