Jersey Finance will be promoting the Island across Asia this autumn with a series of "roadshow" events in key markets.
The tailored series of breakfast and lunchtime events will feature a number of expert speakers, including Richard Corrigan, deputy CEO of Jersey Finance, who will discuss current trends in the private client, funds and capital markets spaces, the role of international finance centres and how Jersey is stepping up to the plate in delivering high quality solutions tailored to the changing needs of the Asian marketplace.
Panels of speakers at each event will also explore topical issues including regulation, transparency, and how Jersey structures are being employed in an Asian context. There will also be opportunities for questions from the audiences and networking.
The roadshows will start at the Conrad Hotel in Hong Kong with a lunchtime private client event on 17 November and a funds and capital markets breakfast event on Tuesday 18 November, before moving on to the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Kuala Lumpur for a breakfast event on 19 November. The roadshow will then move to Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands on 20 November for a private client breakfast event and a lunchtime event focusing on funds and capital markets.
The series will then conclude in the United Arab Emirates on 26 November with a private client event at the Address Mall, Dubai.
The roadshows build on a busy schedule of activity for Jersey Finance across the Asian markets in recent months. In October, following the appointments of Yumei Zhang as Hong Kong-based business development director, Greater China, and Garry Zhao as project manager at a new Launchpad office in Shanghai, Jersey Finance held a media-roundtable in Hong Kong, hosted by Jersey Finance’s CEO Geoff Cook, to mark the fifth anniversary of having a presence there.
In addition, Jersey Finance has sponsored and attended a variety of high profile events recently to showcase its private client, funds and capital markets strengths, including Super Return Hong Kong in September, STEP Asia in Hong Kong in October and the fifth International Capital Conference in Beijing in October, where Yumei Zhang also gave a presentation to the large audience of Chinese and European business professionals.
Mr Corrigan said: “Having our new team in place across the Asian markets gives us an incredibly strong platform to deliver our inaugural Jersey Finance Asia Roadshow, which will give us a fantastic opportunity to showcase Jersey’s strengths, build stronger awareness of Jersey and give us an opportunity to engage directly with our valued contacts in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Dubai.
“We are seeing growth in Jersey’s private client, funds and corporate sectors right across the markets in the Far East and the Gulf region, so it’s important that we maintain a high level of visibility in these markets. Particularly as outbound and inbound Asian investments become more and more sophisticated, for instance, we are seeing real interest in Jersey for the listing of equity and dim sum bonds, for the structuring of offshore renminbi products, and for structuring property investments in the UK. Jersey’s Islamic Finance capabilities are being drawn on increasingly by clients in the Middle East too.”
