We were delighted to sponsor the SAVCA Private Equity Conference 2022, where we were represented by our Head of Funds, Elliot Refson, and Business Development Consultant for Africa, Dr Rufaro Mucheka. The roots of Jersey’s relationship with Africa are both strong and deep, and the conference was a great opportunity to connect with contacts old and new.
Elliot Refson joined Christopher Mauss, Member of Management at Partners Group and Edmund Higenbottam, Managing Director of Verdant Capital, for a live panel discussion to share their insights on the current and future global private equity trends, discussing the role of fluidity and adaptability in todays industry.
South African managers account for the seventh largest pool of capital globally, in respect of Jersey-based fund promoters. Using Jersey for South African fund assets is also on the rise; in 2021 statistics reported a 38% year on year increase. Our Island also offers the right environment to act as an investment gateway for African investors to the UK, European and global markets.
