About the consultation

​The States of Jersey are committed to introducing an ombudsman scheme for financial services offered in Jersey. The States of Guernsey is also consulting on introducing an ombudsman scheme and it is proposed that a joint ombudsman service is set up to cover both islands. As Guernsey is conducting its own consultation exercise, the majority of this consultation document concentrates on Jersey.

The purpose of the proposed scheme is to provide an independent dispute resolution service to settle complaints between consumers and businesses providing financial services in Jersey. The scheme will determine complaints based on what is fair and reasonable in the circumstances and can make awards to make good financial loss incurred by a customer. The service will be free to the complainant and will be financed by financial services providers that are covered by the scope of the scheme.
