Finance and legal professionals from Jersey and London will debate issues affecting the wealth management industry at a conference hosted by Jersey Finance next month.
Speakers and panellists will examine the commercial and regulatory developments that impact on the trust and private wealth sector, as well as including the role of offshore jurisdictions in future financial planning strategies.
Guest panellists include: Jacob Rigg, head of policy at the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP) and Clare Maurice, partner at Maurice Turner Garner.
They will be joined by Geoff Cook, chief executive of Jersey Finance, John Harris, director general of the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) and Colin Powell, adviser to the States of Jersey.
Jersey-based practitioners, Alan Dart, partner at law firm Bedell Cristin and Fraser Robertson, partner at international law firm Appleby, will also speak at the event.
"We will be examining the wider prospects for the trust and wealth management sector and assessing why business in Jersey continues to hold up well, despite the unprecedented economic conditions," says Cook.
"We'll analyse the impact of decisions at the G20 summit where they affect our industry, the increasing importance of tax information exchange agreements for the leading offshore jurisdictions and reflect on the measures announced in the UK Budget."
He says the conference will also update delegates on developments in Jersey including further enhancements to the trust laws, the introduction of Foundations and changes to company law.
Jersey Finance's annual Trusts and Private Wealth conference takes place at 4.30 on 13 May at The Honourable Artillery Company, City Road, London.
