Carey Olsen help you relocate to Jersey

Citywealth

For decades, Jersey has opened its doors to a limited number of new residents – individuals and businesses attracted not only by the Island’s charm and beauty, but also by the many advantages to be gained from living here. Jersey is a particularly attractive location for high net worth individuals and their families, who benefit from the very highest standards of living and the fiscal autonomy Jersey enjoys from the United Kingdom. The Island has close proximity to Europe but is not part of the
European Union.

Sharing the same time zone as the UK, Jersey is within easy reach of mainland Britain and continental Europe by air and sea. From London there are at least 12 flights to the Island every day, and with journey times of less than an hour it is easily possible to live in Jersey and attend morning meetings in the City. Scheduled flights also depart from more than 25 UK regional airports and major European centres such as Paris
and Zurich. Regular ferry services operate from Poole, Weymouth and Portsmouth – by fast car ferry the journey time is around three and a half hours. Services also operate to France and the other Channel Islands, and these destinations can be reached in about an hour. At 45 square miles in size, most road journeys in Jersey take a matter of minutes.

Michelin-starred restaurants, beautiful beaches, open countryside and a warm micro-climate combine to offer the best of all worlds. Jersey represents an appealing blend of British home-from-home and continental sophistication. And its position as a world-class international finance centre should not be overlooked. It is the perfect place for families, with
excellent education and healthcare facilities, and a low crime rate.

In recent years the number of wealthy individuals to be granted residence has increased owing to a new policy designed to attract, among others, entrepreneurs and principals of investment and funds businesses.
