‘We don’t target smaller businesses’

THE Island’s financial regulator has denied it is biased against small firms, in response to comments made in a survey of industry members.
The survey was commissioned by the Jersey Financial Services Commission itself but some of its outcomes must have made uncomfortable reading for director general John Harris and his team.
Among them was a claim that the regulator treats small firms unfairly in comparison into how it deals with the big boys of the sector.
But that has been dismissed as inaccurate by Mr Harris, who said: ‘I don’t think we treat firms differently, large or small.’
