A finance industry business which has recently established a presence in Jersey is marking its arrival by sponsoring the entertainment at Jersey Finance’s ‘Golden Gala’ community charity ball which aims to raise thousands of pounds to support local charitable causes as part of the industry’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

While the main entertainment for the evening is being kept firmly under wraps to surprise guests, local 12 piece live band Inside Job will also perform for the 500 plus  strong audience at the ‘Golden Gala’.

Pershing, a BNY Mellon company which provides outsourcing services and solutions to private banks, private wealth managers and brokers, is looking forward to integrating with local businesses as well as the wider community. Jason Nabi, Chief Relationship Officer of Pershing commented:

“Pershing is looking forward to demonstrating its commitment to Jersey and to making a positive contribution to the local community. We are delighted to be setting up in Jersey during such a momentous year for the finance industry and playing a role in the Golden Gala celebrations.”

Geoff Cook, Chief Executive, Jersey Finance, said:
“We are very pleased to be able to announce Pershing as our second sponsor for the ‘Golden Gala’ which promises to be a spectacular event and the focal point of this year’s Financial Heritage celebrations, with the core aim being to raise as much money as possible for local causes.”    

Organised by Jersey Finance, The Golden Gala will be held on September 9th at Hotel de France and all money raised will go towards the Association of Jersey Charities to be distributed between charities and associations that improve the lives of those less well off within the community. Pershing joins the main sponsor, State Street, in supporting the event.

The event has proved so popular that tickets have already sold out although businesses across the Island are also invited to donate luxury goods to be auctioned to raise money on the evening, please contact Claire Wilby on tel: 836013.
