Tomorrow, Thursday 12th May, is the Guernsey Funds Forum hosted by Guernsey Finance, the biggest promotional event related to funds for the Island which takes place in London.

Last year’s event attracted 500 attendees, the vast majority being off-island delegates including investors, advisers, auditors, promoters and investment managers.

“I am excited to announce that Locate Guernsey will be silver sponsors at the event and will be on stand number 1 showcasing all the good things about living and working in Guernsey.”

The main focus of the event is to add to the dialogue around key issues in the funds industry, with interesting topics including innovative developments on financial technology as well as the necessity of risk management and tax transparency.

The funds sector in Guernsey is a growth area with a Guernsey investment funds and trading companies listed on the LSE having a combined market capitalisation of over US$50 billion.

Our aim at the event is to educate those in the funds sector that not only is Guernsey an excellent place to have a fund under management, but it is also an excellent place to live as well for a number of reasons both personal and professional. Further to this I want to encourage the relocation of fund managers, this is one of our key campaigns for the year.

I am also looking forward to the keynote speech from Luke Johnson, Chairman of Risk Capital Partners. It’s also good to see Alastair Stewart OBE moderating discussion, he is a very recognisable face as an ITV news presenter and also a friend of Guernsey.

In my role as Head of Locate Guernsey I am well connected with the funds sector in Guernsey and would be delighted to have a conversation about the benefits of relocation. I can be reached on +44 (0)7781 134567 or at
