Offshore Services for Islamic Banking & Finance
Q: Please tell us about Volaw. What are its aims, its focus, departments and interest in Islamic banking and finance?
Volaw is a privately owned Trust Company, headquartered in Jersey, Channel Islands. We were established in 1982 and offer a full range of trust and company services to both private clients and institutions. We employ just over 100 people and are closely associated with the Jersey legal practice of Voisin. This means we have direct access to legal services and can be very proactive in the nature of the advice we give and in the solutions we offer to meet our clients’ requirements.
As we have been in business for almost 30 years, and have been actively administering Shari’a compliant structures for about 20 years, there are very few structures that we have not come across, and so we can often offer a turn-key solution to a client’s requirements. However, where those requirements are new or innovative, we are happy to embrace these concepts and will ensure that a structure can be developed that complies with the principles of both Shari’a and Jersey law.
