To commence last week’s activities, we hosted a financial services roundtable at the Singapore offices of Barclays Private Bank, focussing on the private wealth, funds, capital markets and fintech opportunities across Singapore and the wider South East Asia region. Around 20 representatives from a cross-section of finance firms with a Jersey connection and discussions centred around the similarities between Jersey and Singapore as centres of excellence for financial services.
On Tuesday 28 March, we hosted an evening reception at Eden Hall, the residence of the British High Commissioner to Singapore, Her Excellency Kara Owen CMG, to formally launch Jersey’s presence in South East Asia. To view pictures from the evening reception, visit the Flickr album.
A delegation from Jersey travelled to Singapore to participate in our events, organised by Yiow Chong Tan, Business Development Director – South East Asia at Jersey Finance. Attendees included Joe Moynihan, our CEO; Allan Wood, our Global Head of Business Development; Jill Britton, Director General of the Jersey Financial Services Commission; and from the Government of Jersey: Deputy Elaine Miller, Assistant Chief Minister with Responsibility for Financial Services; Cameron Taylor; Senior External Relations Officer and Julie Keir Associate Director and Fintech Lead.
Here you will find case studies from finance firms in Jersey who work with clients in South East Asia, videos about Jersey’s connection with South East Asia, plus insights into the key finance industry sectors Jersey firms offer clients in this market.
Following the events in Singapore, Allan Wood and Yiow Chong Tan travelled to neighbouring Malaysia, a region familiar with Jersey as a key jurisdiction that supports inbound UK investment for Malaysian investors and capital market transactions.
