Jersey Finance would be delighted if you could join us for breakfast at one of two Jersey Finance Funds Masterclass seminars.

The events, which will be held on Tuesday 16 November, in Geneva, and on Wednesday 17 November, in Zurich, will provide an opportunity to hear from experts in their field how Swiss Fund Managers are increasingly taking advantage of Jersey. It will also provide the chance to network with fellow professionals.

Jersey’s funds industry has performed particularly well in recent years. Figures for June 2021 show that the net asset value of regulated funds being administered in the jurisdiction had grown to US$602.4 billion – the highest level on record. Furthermore, the island is home to more than 286 fund promoters, and is firmly established as an alternative investment fund destination.”
