Delegates at the Guernsey Funds Forum have reacted favourably to the island’s new Manager-Led Products (MLP) launch.
The event was hosted by ITV News anchor Alistair Stewart, with a keynote speech by Luke Johnson, chairman of private equity house Risk Capital Partners and former chairman of Channel 4.
As was revealed here, in advance of the event, by Guernsey Finance chief executive Dominic Wheatley, 500 attendees were told of the immediate launch of a new fund classification to the island in the shape of the new MLPs.
In this video delegates at the event were interviewed on their initial thoughts about what the new MLPs will bring to the region.
The video also has a short interview with Emma Bailey, director of investment supervision and policy at Guernsey Financial Services Commission, who was on hand to answer any questions that delegates had on the new launch.
Wheatley said the annual showcase, was the “perfect setting” to announce the immediate launch of the MLP.
