Guernsey Finance is preparing to host its annual Industry Update event.
This is an important event in the promotional agency’s calendar, providing those working in Guernsey’s financial services sector with an update of the work that has been achieved in the past year. With the 2022 update cancelled due to complications arising from the Omicron variant of Covid-19, the team will share an update of what has taken place since 2021.
The themes for this year’s event are business development and facilitation and co-operation. Attendees will hear from the Business Development team, who will travel to Guernsey from the jurisdictions in which they are based to give an update on trends in those areas and the opportunities that they present to Guernsey practitioners.
Chief Executive, Rupert Pleasant, will provide a broad overview of Guernsey’s successes since the last Industry Update and will also update stakeholders on developments within the team at Guernsey Finance.
Rupert said: “Guernsey is home to a flourishing financial services industry, one which continues to successfully endure and adapt to new challenges. Guernsey Finance has taken great pride in promoting the island for another year as a safe, stable and secure jurisdiction, together with its expertise in financial services and breadth of offerings.
“This is the first in-person update since 2021, after the pandemic saw the 2022 update sadly cancelled. The whole team, from across the globe, are excited to share their progress with on-island stakeholders.”
Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from Guernsey Finance’s Sustainable Finance Strategic Advisor, Josephine Bush and the heads of the Guernsey Investment & Funds Association, the Guernsey International Insurance Association and the Guernsey Association of Trustees, who will outline how they work alongside the agency to realise their specific objectives.
The event is open to anyone working in the financial services industry. Details on registration can be found here.
