Jersey's offering to the hedge fund sector continues to grow in popularity, with more than 23 hedge fund management companies established in the Island. 

In the last 2 years alone, Locate Jersey has assisted 5 companies to relocate to the island, including BlueCrest, one of the largest 50 managers in Europe and medium-sized manager Rubicon as well younger companies such as SnowStream and BlueCrest spin out, Systematica.
