Carey Olsen is one of the headline sponsors of the Guernsey Funds Forum 2020. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Guernsey Finance has taken the decision to move the postponed Guernsey Funds Forum event online, and will be holding a virtual event on 2 – 4 November 2020.
Day 1: Capitalism with a purpose – rhetoric or reality?
Monday 2 November – 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Against this backdrop, a panel of leading market practitioners will discuss whether 2020 will change capitalism as we know it, or if it is more of a noise and distraction in a ‘western’ context. The panel will also discuss the implications for the global fund community and the investment landscape.
Panellists: Gurpreet Manku, Deputy Director General & Director of Policy – BVCA and Stephen Ross, Partner – Sidley Austin LLP
Day 2: The attraction of core values to a diverse universe
Tuesday 3 November – 2:00pm – 3:00pm
In this panel, leading market practitioners will talk about their experiences in managing investors, and how Guernsey’s strengths have supported their needs in the current climate.
Panellists: Joanna Hylton, Finance Director – Cairngorm Capital Partners, Nadav Livni, Managing Director – The Hillview Group and Gillian Martin, Director – Liberum Capital Limited.
Day 3: Keynote Speech – Andrew Neil
Wednesday 4 November – 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Renowned journalist and broadcaster Andrew Neil is the keynote speaker for the Guernsey Funds Forum 2020. Fresh from US Presidential Election Day, Andrew will provide his take on the election and the implications, including what this means for the UK. Andrew will then be joined by Guernsey Finance’s CEO, Rupert Pleasant, for a live Q&A session.
This virtual event will be continuing on from the theme used at the first virtual Guernsey Funds Forum in May, ‘Sanctuary – Financing a sustainable future’. Click here to watch a recording of this webinar.
