People and Purpose: New Thinking for a New Era
As we move through the pandemic, people and nations will face disparate challenges. But what connects us is a shared sense of purpose to rebuild for the better. Collaboration, trust and acting with integrity will be vital for businesses that want to maintain a positive reputation.
For the private wealth community and international finance centres like Jersey, now is an opportune time to reflect on the impact of reputation, embrace new thinking, and prepare for a new era.
The Jersey Finance Annual Private Wealth Conference, entitled ‘People and Purpose: New Thinking for a New Era’, will focus on how new opportunities presented by digitalisation and ESG are influencing the private client community. Industry experts will seek to answer vital questions of interest to wealth advisors, such as the drivers for private client decision-making and how decisions impact the wider society.
Hear from visionary and inventive leaders in their fields, those creating solutions to address the future challenges presented by this new era, with people and purpose at its core. At the half-day conference, delegates can expect plenty of in-person networking and an exclusive opportunity to hear from key public figures, including Lord Sebastian Coe and Rachel Botsman.
For more information, please contact a member of our events team.

Rt Hon Lord Sebastian Coe CH KBE
Using his political skills, his strategic know-how and a true passion for sport, Lord Coe won the bid to host the 2012 Olympics in London. Seven years later the Prime Minister thanked him for “lifting our hearts” after organising the most successful Games of modern times. After the Games, Seb served as chairman of the British Olympic Association and is now President of World Athletics (previously the International Association of Athletics Federations, IAAF). Seb first made his name as one of the greatest athletes of his generation. He set twelve world records over four distances, achieving four golds and three silver medals in the Olympics and European Championships. He tells the story in his autobiography, Running My Life. Talking about the setbacks as well as victories, he shows how he beat the competition by facing down everything in training: “You don’t become a champion by turning up and hoping to get lucky.”
