About the consultation

​​​​Jersey is developing a new bank resolution regime (Jersey Resolution Regime) that will fall in line with international developments.​​

The aims are to: 

  • ensure the continuity of critical banking functions
  • avoid adverse effects on financial stability
  • protect public funds by minimising reliance on public financial support to failing banks and to protect covered depositors and clients’ assets

The international standards state that "in order to avoid moral hazard, any failing bank should be able to exit the market, irrespective of its size and interconnectedness, without causing systemic disruption".

​This draft Bank (Recovery and Resolution) (Jersey) Law 201- closely follows the European Union’s Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive 2014 / 59 / EU (BRRD) and the change of the Banking Act 2009 into the law of England and Wales (Banking Act) for the sake of consistency and to follow international standards.

We want your comments on the proposed draft law before it is submitted to the States of Jersey for debate.
