An article featuring our Head of Funds, Elliot Refson, and Philip Pirecki, Americas Lead at Jersey Finance, was published recently by Global Custodian. Elliot and Philip were interviewed by journalist Chris Lemmon about the importance of innovation within an international finance centre, and how this is vital for remaining relevant to end clients.

In the discussion, they highlighted how Jersey is continually evolving its product offering and, with the clear benefits of substance, how Jersey provides a real depth of choice and service. The future of the alternatives world was also a topic that was explored in depth. Elliot and Philip discussed how virtual assets are gaining traction in Jersey, with organisations looking to grow their digital offerings. The incentives and benefits were considered, as well as the technologies involved, the importance of pragmatic problem solving to move forward, and how robust regulatory frameworks are crucial.
