The Jersey Bankers Association (JBA) is an association of licensed banks in Jersey. Members are diverse and include British clearing banks, merchant banks, private banks and a range of international banking groups.
Some managed banks and trust divisions of banking organisations are also included in the membership. Through the work of its various committees, the JBA acts as a consultative body on a wide range of industry matters including regulation, legislation, tax, risk and product development.
The JBA also works closely with Jersey Finance Limited and other professional bodies to ensure training courses and recognised qualifications are in place to underpin the infrastructure of the banking industry and to support its growth.
Strong links are also maintained with the British Bankers Association in London through an Associate membership.
