Jersey Finance is represented at one of the most important global taxation conferences in India later this week.

A Jersey Finance delegation is in Delhi and Mumbai (27 November – 5 December) to meet with a number of intermediaries and to take part in the International Taxation Conference 2010. Jersey Finance is sponsoring the official conference dinner on Thursday and representatives will be manning a stand during the day.

The International Taxation Conference is organised by the Foundation for International Taxation, an independent not for profit organisation, and has become an established event on the international calendar attracting high calibre speakers with a detailed knowledge of taxation issues and delegates from many of the world’s leading financial centres.

Two Jersey based practitioners who are part of the delegation, Neel Sahai, Director and Gavin Wilkins, Head of Fund Services at Minerva Jersey, will be speaking at the conference in a session entitled ‘Funds and Listing vehicles – why Jersey?’

Geoff Cook, Chief Executive of Jersey Finance Ltd., who is leading the delegation, commented:

‘The purpose of this visit is to highlight the capabilities of our finance centre and to explain how we act as a gateway to European investment. We will emphasise Jersey’s high regulatory standards, legal and regulatory features and our general appeal to international investors.’

In advance of opening an office in Mumbai next year, its important that Jersey has a visible presence whenever possible; that we continue to meet key business contacts and participate in conferences which have relevance to the services we offer and where we can outline our high standards.’
