John Harris, director general of the JFSC, said: “With the similarity and extent of issues and challenges in financial services for both Jersey and Liechtenstein expected to increase in the coming years, it is important that the JFSC and the FMA are in a position to co-operate closely.

“This memorandum will assist in that regard as it provides a formal framework for the exchange of regulatory information and mutual assistance. We understand each other and we already work effectively together so this agreement reinforces yet further an already excellent relationship.”

The JFSC has MoUs (either on a bilateral or multilateral basis) with regulators in over 90 countries.
