Jersey Finance to promote fund services in Edinburgh

Jersey Finance, the promotional agency for the island's financial services industry, has announced plans for a series of events in the UK during the first half of the year, including a seminar to showcase Jersey's fund services offering in Edinburgh for the first time.

The programme of events will also promote the island's trust and wealth management services with seminars planned for Manchester and Leeds in March and Birmingham in June, as well as Jersey Finance's annual conference for the trusts industry in London on April 29.

'With changes to the tax and domiciles rules in the UK imminent, it's a particularly important year to be visiting the UK and talking to finance professionals in the trust sector and other advisers about Jersey's financial services industry,' says Jersey Finance chief executive Geoff Cook.

'We will use the opportunity to highlight the depth and breadth of experience of our wealth management industry, the legislative changes that have been introduced, the enduring strength of our regulatory regime and how we achieve a balance between confidentiality in financial affairs and the needs of the international community to fight fiscal crime.'

Jersey Finance is also organising a series of visits to key international markets including Asia. In addition to a fact-finding visit to India by Cook this month, the organisation plans to lead an industry delegation on a return visit to China in April, including receptions in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

'Our marketing strategy will continue to focus on our key objective of positioning Jersey as a high quality, sophisticated, innovative and influential jurisdiction,' Cook says. 'But rather than large-scale events in the key international finance centres on an annual basis, we intend to introduce more frequent visits to leading commercial regions of the world that will enable us to engage on a more regular basis with the key business introducers, advisers and international investors who might benefit from using Jersey.'
