A focus on South-East Asia, fintech and sustainable finance were among the priorities laid out at Jersey Finance's 2023 update.
The review event, ‘Global Horizons’, took place on January 20 and saw the senior team at Jersey Finance speak to an audience of more than 300 delegates from across the industry.
During the event, the team highlighted that Jersey Finance had been involved in more than 60 global events, participated in almost 200 strategic engagements, held more than 2,600 gatekeeper meetings and input into 20 industry consultations over 2022.
They also discussed a number of priorities for the year ahead, in particular plans to formally establish a presence in Singapore, building out its Fintech strategy through a series of targeted events and embedding sustainable principles across the industry's sectors.
Jason Laity, Chairman of Jersey Finance, said: “There’s no doubt that 2022 was a challenging year. However, Jersey’s finance industry came out of it in pretty good shape. In particular, we made really good strides in our key sustainable finance strategy and in evolving our fintech environment.
"This is important as we look forward to 2023, because it underlines that we are a dynamic, growing and adaptable centre for financial services offering a stable, high quality, professional ecosystem
Joe Moynihan, CEO of Jersey Finance said: “We are now working in a post-Covid world, but it is a world that is still highly challenging, volatile and uncertain. For Jersey as an IFC, we need to remain alive in 2023 to the changing geopolitical landscape, global economic recovery, climate change, supply chain issues, considerable disruption to the energy sector, the ongoing rise of sustainability and digitisation, and the shifting nature of skills.
“All of these are pertinent to our industry – but I believe that our focus on championing Jersey as a global, innovative, sustainable, inclusive and supportive IFC positions us well.”
