On 2 March, we co-hosted an African-focussed networking event in Dubai. Our CEO, Joe Moynihan, and our Director of Middle East, Africa and India, Faizal Bhana, were delighted to meet with finance professionals that do business in Africa or have African connections and interests.
This week, we partnered with Africa Legal Network (ALN) and Grant Thornton to host a event focussing on governance in the new age in Nairobi. The event was invitation-only, and featured opening remarks from Grant Thornton and Jersey Finance, a keynote address from Rosa Nduati-Mutero, Managing Partner at Anjarwalla & Khanna, followed by a panel session on developments in corporate governance and audience Q&A session.
To further promote Jersey in Nairobi, Faizal met with key media journalists to discuss Jersey’s relationship with Kenya and the opportunities Jersey LLPs present to African investors. The journalists that attended this roundtable included Ramah Nyang’ from CGTN Africa, Makong’ Bruhan from Capital FM, Graham Kajaliwa from The Standard Group and Blasio William from TV 47.
In Jersey, we co-hosted a Nigeria financial crime risk assessment roundtable in partnership with Themis, a financial crime specialist. This event, led by our Global Head of Business Development: Allan Wood and Carel Van Randwyck, Chief Growth Officer at Themis, provided our Jersey firms the opportunity to hear from an expert panel of Africa-focussed practitioners, including Ibrahim Baba Muhammed, Head of Forensics and Investigation at Seplat Energy Plc, Adeolu Idowu, Partner for Governance Risk and Compliance at Aluko & Oyebode and Pattison Boleigha, AML Expert.
