AFTER months in the doldrums, the finance industry is finally showing signs of recovery, figures released today reveal.
However, the information released by the States Statistics Unit shows that the position of the construction and retail sectors remains very gloomy.
Not only have finance firms reported an increase in work for the first time in a year, they are also enjoying better profits than they were in December 2011.
Jersey Finance say the latest figures contained in the Jersey Business Tendency Survey about the prospects for the finance industry are encouraging.
