Jersey’s international finance centre has a long-standing relationship with South Africa. For the past 30 years, firms in Jersey have supported South African clients seeking wealth management solutions and accessing capital raising opportunities into Europe and the UK.

Building on this positive symbiotic relationship, Jersey Finance is proud to introduce a series of events taking place from 28 November to 7 December in both Johannesburg and Cape Town – the South Africa Roadshow 2022.

Focussing on private wealth, funds and sustainable finance, attendees will hear the latest thought leadership and insights directly from Jersey and South Africa-based experts.

To maximise networking opportunities for a Jersey delegation while in the region, we have partnered with the Private Client Dining (PCD) Club. In addition, Jersey Finance is sponsoring the SuperReturn Africa 2022 conference in Cape Town.

A delegation from Jersey will attend our events, including Member firms with a South-African connection.
