Guernsey hosts fund forum and Jersey Trust Company celebrates 25th anniversary.
Guernsey Funds Forum to discuss regulatory demands
The annual Guernsey Funds Forum will take place this year in London on Wednesday 2nd May at the Grange St Paul’s Hotel. Called, Shaken Not Stirred, the forum will discuss strategies to cope with the torrent of regulatory demands since the financial crisis began over three years ago as well as today’s difficult market conditions.
Key note speakers include former Chancellor of the Exchequer Norman Lamont and the BBC’s Stephanie Flanders. The forum will be moderated by ITV news anchor, Alastair Stewart. Other industry panellists include Adrian Garner of MMIP Investment Management, William Marle of LCF Rothschild, Claire Wilkinson from MVision Private Equity Advisers, Rob Barr of Pantheon Partners, Oleg Myshkin from Fleming Family Partners and Evren Unver of Turkven. Peter Niven, Chief Executive of Guernsey Finance, said “Attracting speakers of the calibre of Lord Lamont and Stephanie Flanders is a real testament to the growing stature of the Guernsey Funds Forum and how it is viewed by industry. Last year’s event attracted more than 400 participants and we hope to better that this time around.”
The day kicks off with registration and lunch from 12.30pm, while the forum itself begins at 1.30pm and is followed by a drinks networking reception at 5.30pm. Panel sessions will look at regulation as well as how fund managers can cope with investor demands and attract new investors.
The Forum draws an audience of investors, fund promoters, investment managers, corporate financial advisers, fund formation mangers, tax advisers and fund auditors.
