Guernsey Finance is looking to appoint a permanent London-based representative for the first time.
The promotional agency for the island’s finance industry says the move recognises the crucial two-way business relationship between the island and the capital, and its likely importance following Britain’s Brexit decision.
Chief executive Dominic Wheatley said: “Guernsey’s finance sector has strong ties with the City of London, offering a complementary offshore business environment. We are looking for a London representative to help drive this relationship forward at this critical time.”
It follows the appointments of representatives in China, Hong Kong and Dubai.
Guernsey Finance has also established links with TheCityUK, the industry-led body for UK-based financial and related professional services, and its chief executive Miles Celic is the keynote speaker for the agency’s annual industry update on Wednesday 24 January at St James Concert and Assembly Hall.
Mr Celic will discuss his organisation’s work in the UK, how Guernsey’s financial services sector fits with its remit, and TheCityUK’s involvement in positioning London and the wider UK market for a successful post-Brexit future.
Guernsey Finance will also host its first London-based event of the year in early February: the 2018 Guernsey Funds Masterclass.
