The potential for Asian investors of doing business in the Island were promoted to key markets last month, through Jersey Finance’s first lost of Asian roadshows.
Between 17 and 26 November, Jersey Finance hosted a number of breakfast and lunch events in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates. Guest speakers discussed trends in the private client, funds, and capital market spaces; including regulation, transparency, and how Jersey expertise and structures are increasingly being employed in an Asian context.
This first in a planned series of events is part of increased activity in the Middle and Far East in recent months.
In addition, Jersey Finance has bolstered its presence in key Asian markets with the recent appointments of Yumei Zhang as Hong Kong-based Business Development Director, Greater China, and Garry Zhao as the Project Manager at a new office in Shanghai, while Charlie Barlow and Gary Hales have been made business development directors in the UAE to cover the Middle East region and India.
Richard Corrigan, Deputy CEO at Jersey Finance spoke at each of the roadshows.
He said: “The roadshows gave us a fantastic opportunity to showcase Jersey’s strengths, build stronger awareness of Jersey, and engage directly with our valued contacts in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Dubai. Not only did we see significant interest in attracting in excess of 500 delegates in total, but those who attended were key senior advisers. This is a real success and reflects the high esteem in which Jersey is held.”
