Jersey Finance has appointed Richard Corrigan as global head of business development.
In this new role, he will assume responsibility for the international offices of Jersey Finance in Abu Dhabi, India and Hong Kong whilst retaining a personal focus on extending the profile of Jersey’s finance industry in the UK, Europe and Russia.
Corrigan (pictured) joins Jersey Finance from the banking sector where he has held senior roles with Barclays Wealth and Royal Bank of Scotland International in a number of financial centres, most recently as director for Barclays Wealth in Jersey.
Geoff Cook, chief executive of Jersey Finance, says: “I am delighted that we have been able to recruit such a high calibre individual as Richard to lead our overseas business development activities. He has a wealth of experience both in Jersey and in international markets and I know that his knowledge, drive and energy will be enormously helpful in harnessing the numerous business growth opportunities which lie in both our traditional and developing markets.”
Corrigan says: “With ever increasing mobility of international capital it is vital that Jersey seeks out fresh opportunities and new markets whilst continuing to invest in the strong relationships that have served us so well within the United Kingdom, particularly the City of London. I look forward to working with member firms and colleagues to stimulate increased business for the jurisdiction and continue to reinforce the view amongst international practitioners of Jersey as a well-regulated and respected international finance centre.”
Corrigan has been a committee member of the Jersey Bankers Association and continues as a member of the Prince’s Trust Steering Group for Jersey.
