Based in Jersey Finance’s Hong Kong office, An will be responsible for expanding Jersey’s range of activities in the region, identifying opportunities for Jersey financial services businesses, and building relationships between Hong Kong, Greater China and Jersey. An takes over the role from predecessor Yumei Zhang.

Originally from Belgium, An joins Jersey Finance from the Intertrust Group’s Hong Kong office, where she was Business Unit Director for the European and private equity teams.  Prior to that, she was a corporate lawyer and business unit manager at ATC Corporate Services in Luxembourg, before its merger with the Intertrust Group. A qualified lawyer, An also worked in the international business team of law firm Matheson in Dublin.

Jersey Finance has had an office in Hong Kong since 2009, and in 2014 established a complementary ‘launchpad’ office in Shanghai, which remains headed up by project manager Garry Zhao.

Jersey Finance Deputy CEO, Richard Corrigan, commented:

“We see the Greater China region as an area of growth and opportunity for the future prospects of Jersey’s finance industry, and we are continuing to expand our range of promotional and business development activities, and embed Jersey’s reputation as a high quality jurisdiction in the region through, for example, our Asia roadshow program.

“With her significant amount of specific corporate and alternative fund experience and understanding of European and Asian markets, coupled with the significant contribution and progress made by her predecessor Yumei Zhang, An will prove a really valuable addition to our global business development team.”
