Recent figures show that Jersey continues to perform well on the global stage in the funds sector. The value of funds being administered in Jersey now stands at US$341bn. Jersey’s real estate funds sector has risen by around 50% in the past five years, with a number of high profile property funds having been structured through the jurisdiction recently – the second largest real estate fund ever to be listed on the London Stock Exchange was structured through Jersey last year, for instance.
This breakfast event will focus on Jersey’s enduring strengths as a leading centre for the domiciliation, management and servicing of all types of funds. Expert speakers, including Joe Moynihan, Director of Financial Services, Government of Jersey and Geoff Cook, CEO of Jersey Finance, will discuss current trends in the funds arena, the role of international finance centres and how Jersey is stepping up to the plate in delivering a high quality service tailored to the changing needs of the Gulf marketplace.
They will also highlight Jersey's growing appeal as specialist real estate fund centre, with a strong track record for those investing into UK real-estate, and how Jersey structures, including Islamic finance, can be beneficial to Gulf investors.
