The new Outsourcing Policy made important changes and registered persons in Jersey will need to follow the new Outsourcing Policy for new arrangements from 1 June 2017.

All existing outsourcing arrangements will need to be updated and Pinel Advocates can provide advice and assist with this work.  To arrange a call or meeting, please contact Andrew Pinel or Oliver Hughes.

Registered persons will remain responsible and accountable to the JFSC and must:-
