In a year that sees the critical Moneyval inspection of Jersey’s finance industry, it is fitting that IoD Jersey’s first Leaders’ Lunch of 2023 is Jill Britton, Director General of the Jersey Financial Services Commission.
The event, sponsored by Lloyds Bank International, is on Friday 21st April.
Jill is responsible for leading the JFSC in its day-to-day operations as both regulator and registry, and was Executive Director of Supervision between May 2016 and September 2021. She will discuss the upcoming Moneyval visit, scheduled for September, which will be looking at the measures Jersey has in place to prevent money laundering and the financing of terrorism, as well as compliance with the relevant international standards.
Jill will be providing an overview of the inspection process which has a wide-reaching impact on Jersey’s economy that isn’t just isolated to the finance industry.
IoD Jersey chair, Natasha Egré, said: “We are delighted that Jill has agreed to be our guest of honour for the first Leaders’ Lunch of 2023, and to provide insight into the process and common misconceptions that surround the Moneyval inspection. While this is clearly relevant to the finance industry, it is in fact up to the whole island to demonstrate its effectiveness in combatting financial crime, and so Jill will be aiming her talk at all members across all industries.”
Jill has been with the JFSC since 2016 and has 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry in the UK, Jersey, and Asia having specialised in compliance and operational risk management for global banking organisations. She is passionate about learning and development and mentors a number of talented women, supporting them to fulfil their potential.
Alasdair Gardner, Islands Director, Lloyds Bank International said, “As a bank we are committed to ensuring the highest standards of compliance and ensuring money laundering and the financing of terrorism have no place in Jersey. It is therefore with great pleasure that we are sponsoring this event with Jill Britton, who has been at the forefront of working to ensure that everyone adheres to the international standards that Jersey has committed to.”
