About BNP Paribas

BNP Paribas in the Channel Islands

BNP Paribas in the Channel Islands

The Group first set up in the Channel Islands in 1979 and has grown along with the development of Jersey as a financial centre specialising in private wealth management and institutional asset management, fund and securities services.

Across the Channel Islands, our professional team works to offer our clients a wide range of services and products, providing innovative, customised solutions. BNP Paribas’ teams are committed to ensuring that the bank contributes every day to the success of everyone who places their confidence in us and to the progress of society as a whole.

The Channel Islands are a unique location in the sense that their independent yet privileged relationship with the United Kingdom underpins Judicial and Fiscal independence whilst practising international regulatory standards.

This development has attracted the necessary infrastructure and a substantial number of the worlds’ leading Financial Institutions, Accountancy, Law and other related professionals are locally established and available.

Our local offices represent a gateway to the extensive BNP Paribas international network, itself consisting of over 2,000 offices in 72 countries.
