Jersey Finance’s Head of Legal and Technical, Lisa Springate, has won Woman of the Year (Silver) and Jersey Finance has won Company of the Year– Female Leadership (Gold), both in the government, regulatory, non-profit organisation categories, at the Citywealth Powerwomen Awards 2020.
Held at The Montcalm, Marble Arch, the Powerwomen Awards, now in their eighth year, aim to champion women in the wealth sector and highlight the female leaders who are impacting and influencing the industry. Winners of the awards were selected from a shortlist of more than 100 women from across the wealth management industry, drawn up by a panel of independent judges and voted on by the public. Awards were presented at the ceremony by British television presenter, Mark Durden-Smith.
Lisa, who is also Chair of the Institute of Directors in Jersey, joined Jersey Finance in 2017 from law firm Bedell Cristin, where she was a partner in the commercial litigation department. In her current role, she works with key stakeholders across Jersey’s finance industry to lead on the delivery of Jersey Finance’s legal and technical services, to support the enhancement of Jersey’s product and services offering.
Prior to moving to Jersey in 1993, Lisa practised with law firm Mayer Brown in Hong Kong and as a barrister in London. She qualified as a Jersey advocate in 2000 and soon earned recognition as one of the Channel Islands’ legal elite, acting for high-net worth individuals, banks and trust companies over 25 years. Lisa is a regular speaker at seminars and conferences both on and off-Island.
Commenting on the wins, Lisa Springate said:
“I’m thrilled to have received this award again, but most importantly, so proud of everyone at Jersey Finance for ensuring we’re setting a good example and supporting women at all levels. I hope that these awards will continue to inspire women across the industry and I thank all who voted for myself and Jersey Finance, the judges and Karen Jones and the team at Citywealth.”
