Jersey International Business School are delighted to launch their 2016 Regulatory Summit, which will be held on Tuesday 15 March 2016 at the Hotel de France.

With leading speakers from the world of financial services regulation this event will help delegates to understand some of the myriad regulations facing the financial services industry. This one-day summit will examine the key challenges faced by industry and discuss the future and nature of regulation in Jersey and globally.  

The Business School has worked in collaboration with industry and local experts to design this event, which will be essential for those wanting to keep up to date with key developments in regulation.  

Chris Usher, CEO of Jersey International Business School, commented: “This new event will give delegates the opportunity to hear from those in a position to influence regulation in Jersey and beyond.  

We are delighted to have attracted such a superb line up of speakers and the Summit will give delegates a chance to ask questions of the speakers as well as the panel. It’s incredibly important that regulated financial services hear the music as well as the words of financial services regulation and this conference provides the opportunity to hear the tone from the top as well as the granular detail.”  

The keynote speaker will be Lord Eatwell, Chairman of the Jersey Financial Services Commission, who will be delivering a presentation on ‘Is regulation harming economic growth?’  

Lord Eatwell is president of Queens’ College and emeritus professor of financial policy, University of Cambridge. From 1985 to 1992, John Eatwell served as economic adviser to Neil Kinnock, leader of the British Labour Party. In 1992 he entered the House of Lords and from 1993 to 1997 was Principal Opposition Spokesman on Treasury and Economic Affairs, a position he resumed in 2010.  

Following his presentation, Lord Eatwell will participate in a panel discussion with Richard Corrigan, John Harris and Jenny New. This discussion will follow the topic of Lord Eatwell’s presentation and will allow the perspectives of the Regulator, Industry and Jersey Finance to be shared with the audience.  

This year, we are also delighted to welcome Professor David Jackman. David is a Fellow (Visiting) of Cambridge Judge Business School and author of The Compliance Revolution. During the afternoon break delegates will have the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book.
