On Tuesday 17 May, invited funds professionals from South Africa and Jersey joined us in Stellenbosch for our exclusive ‘Funds Focus on South Africa’ roundtable event. The event was led by our Business Development Consultant for Africa, Dr Rufaro Nyakatawa, and moderated by our Head of Funds, Elliot Refson. Invited guests discussed the implications of South Africa’s ‘grey listing’, how offshore centres can support capital-raising in the region, as well as South African tax exchange controls and structuring. Following the roundtable, we hosted a networking reception for like-minded fund professionals and representatives from our Jersey firms.

With South Africa promoters being the biggest source of assets by promoter origin (Monterey Jersey Fund Report 2021), we were delighted to sponsor the SAVCA Private Equity Conference on 17-18 May. Rufaro and Elliot met with South African fund managers in our meeting hub during the two-day conference.
