London, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey and Geneva – 11 February 2010: Local wealth management experts Collins Stewart have negotiated a further exclusive two-year deal for the external branding of all 11 airside departures and arrivals gates at Jersey Airport.

One of the largest and most visual advertising campaigns the Island has ever seen, the deal involves over 100 tailor-made aluminium signs branded with key Collins Stewart geographical and product information. The signage – designed by Offshore International Advertising – has to be especially strong to cope with both weather conditions and any back draught from jet engines, and also has to be non-reflective to avoid reflecting sunlight into pilots' eyes.

Collins Stewart Wealth Management has also created major advertising campaigns at the Guernsey and Isle of Man airports, including illuminated billboards and branding on display screens showing aircraft departures and arrivals.

'This deal helps us cement our position as a leading Wealth Management business in the Channel Islands and gives more prominence to the island's financial services industry to our international visitors' said Collins Stewart's Chief Executive Officer Grahame Lovett.

The Jersey deal is the largest sponsorship arrangement so far secured by Jersey Airport and reflects the growing commercial drive of a management team determined to invest in new route networks and improved services.
