Led by Geoff Cook, CEO, Jersey Finance, these thought-provoking events will feature keynote speeches from Joe Moynihan, Director of Financial Services for the Government of Jersey, and a panel session of industry experts, which will cover a range of topics including Islamic finance, multi-generational and multi-jurisdictional family offices and real estate.
The lunchtime events will offer key insights into a number of recent trends, such as the increase in GCC investors investing in UK real estate, as well as the rising number of family offices in the GCC, which are expected to double to over 400 during the next eight years. With the value of Shariah-compliant assets worldwide expected to rise from US$2 trillion to US$3 trillion by 2019*, the GCC Roadshow will also highlight Jersey’s enduring strengths as a centre of choice for Islamic finance, as it continues to meet the demands of the GCC advisory community.
These conferences follow on from Jersey Finance’s successful 2014 and 2015 roadshows, and are set to attract a broad range of members of the GCC advisory community, including wealth practitioners, lawyers, investment managers and other finance professionals, in addition to providing plenty of opportunities to network.
Geoff Cook, CEO Jersey Finance commented ‘One of our strategic objectives for 2016 and beyond is to continue to broaden and deepen our relationship with key markets such as the GCC. We are delighted to be able to build on the success of previous events in the region and to continue to promote Jersey as a jurisdiction that can meet the demands of Gulf investors. We have already seen great interest in the Roadshows and look forward to welcoming delegates to what should prove to be another successful series of events.’
