Barclays Wealth is teaming up with Jersey Finance TV to provide a weekly market insight via webcast.

The partnership follows the success of a similar relationship that Barclays Wealth has developed with the Financial Mirror online newspaper in Cyprus.

Jersey Finance launched its new online television facility in May and it includes programmes and webcast features about the Finance Industry.

From September, Henk Potts will be providing short weekly insights to the business market and will provide a look at the ‘week ahead’. Henk joined Barclays in 1999 and was appointed to equity strategist at Barclays Stockbrokers in 2001 where he works as part of a team formulating investment strategy for clients. He is well known in the media world with regular appearances on Radio 4 and 5, BBC 2 Working Lunch, ITV, Channel 4, BBC News 24, Bloomberg and Sky News, as well as being both LBC and Talksport's renowned morning city commentator.

Richard Corrigan, Director of Barclays Wealth is eager to ensure that the organisation continues to embrace new advances in online media in order to communicate effectively to its wider audience.

‘As online media channels continue to grow and develop it is crucial that we keep on top of potential opportunities to communicate with our clients and stakeholders. Following the success of our relationship with the Financial Mirror in Cyprus we are delighted to be joining up with Jersey Finance TV to communicate with a wider audience closer to home,’ he said.
