Jersey Finance, the island’s marketing body, has brought together a group of Hong Kong-based finance and legal experts to provide it with advice on developing business opportunities in the Far East.
Jonathan White, Chairman of Jersey Finance, hosted the launch of the ‘China Jersey Advisory Group' on 15th October at the China Club, during a visit to Hong Kong. The Group consists of senior individuals all based in the region, including regional banking heads, wealth management advisers, senior partners at major law firms and corporate listings experts.
The group is expected to meet regularly to discuss and provide expert on-the-ground advice on Jersey's representative efforts, business development activities and networking opportunities in Hong Kong and China.
White said: "The launch of the China Jersey Advisory Group is a really important development for Jersey in the Far East, and it was a real pleasure to welcome a group of such highly regarded individuals to our inaugural meeting. That there is clearly so much interest in Jersey amongst senior professionals in Hong Kong is hugely encouraging. Their combined insights and knowledge will undoubtedly prove invaluable in the years ahead.
"With around £6bn of deposits emanating from the Far East currently being held in Jersey banks and a growing amount of corporate and funds business coming to Jersey from the region, there is no doubt that maintaining visibility through initiatives like this trip are vital in keeping Jersey firmly on the map."
