Mourant Partner elected Chair of Funds Association


A funds lawyer and Mourant partner has been elected as the new Chair of the Jersey Funds Association (JFA) which represents Jersey’s funds industry.

Tim Morgan will serve for a three-year term leading the JFA Committee, which is made up of representatives from across the local funds industry, taking over from former Chair Mike Byrne.

Following his election, Mr Morgan said: “I'm very honoured to be taking up the mantle from Mike who has been a dynamic and significant leader in his term as Chair. I’m looking forward to working with the committee and stakeholders on and off-island as the JFA looks to support the ongoing success of our industry.”

"My appointment is underpinned by a continuing, deep commitment to and support of the local funds industry by Mourant, and sits alongside additional commitment through the role that Joel Hernandez undertakes as a member of the JFA technical and technical sub-committee, and Ali Horn on the JFA marketing sub-committee." 

"Jersey’s funds industry operates in an increasingly complex market, but it is an environment that Jersey thrives in," he added. "With investors continuing to show an appetite to allocate to alternatives – Jersey’s sweet spot – and thanks to its ability to adapt, its deep pool of expertise and highly effective relationships between the regulator, government and industry, Jersey is in an extremely strong position to continue to assert its strengths on the international stage."

Also on the JFA committee are Michael Johnson, who has been appointed Vice Chair and who heads one of the largest fund services businesses in the island, while Chris Marshall continues as Treasurer, Niamh Lalor as Chair of the legal and regulatory subcommittee, Martin Paul as the Chair of education and Steve Cartwright as the Chair of the marketing sub-committee. Caroline Harrington also remains as Secretary.
