Affinity is head quartered in Jersey, the largest of the British Channel Islands. The Island is located 85 miles (135 km) south of mainland Britain and 14 miles (22 km) from the coast of France. The population of circa 95,000 includes some 13,000 professionally trained staff working within finance and support industries.
The jurisdiction’s main language is English. However, due to Jersey’s cosmopolitan nature, most European languages are spoken – including Spanish, Italian and French by Affinity employees.
Jersey’s status as a UK Crown Dependency allows the jurisdiction to offer businesses and individuals the benefits of an independent international finance centre which is close to the United Kingdom and mainland Europe.
Jersey is the highest rated offshore international finance centre and ranked 19th in the world for wealth management and private banking services in the Global Financial Centres Index (GFCI) 2013.
