Change, Challenge and Opportunity
The world continues to see change on a daily basis and we all have to be flexible, adaptable and resilient to those changes, and the challenges they present.
The conference, entitled ‘Change, Challenge and Opportunity’, will focus on how leading financial services businesses must continue to adapt to an ever-changing landscape. Acting responsibly, engendering trust and remaining innovative will all play vital roles in creating opportunities for the future. Now more than ever, world-leading international finance centres like Jersey must evolve in an environment that presents continued societal, political and digital disruption as well as changes in investor behaviour.
