Jersey Finance bags Peston for conference

Monday 21 August 2023

Editor, broadcaster and journalist Robert Peston will be the keynote guest speaker at Jersey Finance's private wealth conference in London next month.

Mr Peston, host of current affairs show ‘Peston’ on ITV, started on television as an Economics Editor and prior to that as Business Editor where he reported on the tumult of the credit crunch and the global financial crisis.

The conference entitled ‘Strategies for a World in Transition’ will examine how high net worth individuals the world over can protect their wealth, plan for long term growth and ensure a successful transfer of their legacy and the debate will be discussed through the lens of the current complex geopolitical situation.

The annual event will again be staged at The Brewery conference venue in central London and Joe Moynihan, Chief Executive Officer at Jersey Finance, will introduce the programme and also deliver a keynote address.

"Within a complex geopolitical background including war in Ukraine, supply chain issues, high inflation and a cost-of-living crisis, energy sector disruption, market volatility and increasing regulatory demands, we will showcase Jersey’s strengths as a leading international finance centre. We will highlight how our stability, resilience, innovation and attractive ecosystem of professional expertise, remains a robust platform to support the objectives of the private wealth industry during these volatile and uncertain times," Mr Moynihan said.

"I am thrilled that we have Robert Peston delivering a keynote presentation based on a hugely successful career in the front line of news broadcasting and print journalism, while I am delighted also that we have been able to attract many high calibre professionals to lead the discussions on the crucial issues that impact individual high net worth investors and their advisers. It should prove to be both a thought provoking and entertaining day for all those present."

More than 400 delegates, the vast majority from London and the wider UK, are expected to attend the event on Tuesday 26 September.
