Jersey Finance is set to highlight the jurisdiction via a pending roadshow series that will encompass Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Dubai.
The cities will be hosting roadshow events on 17 & 18, 19, 20 and 26 November respectively.
The series is intended to ramp up the visibility of Jersey among key wealth markets across the Middle East and Asia. Among the topics to be presented include the role of Jersey structures and how they are being used in an Asian context.
Jersey recently appointed Yumei Zhang as Hong Kong-based business development director, Greater China, and Garry Zhao as project manager at a new Launchpad office in Shanghai.
Richard Corrigan (pictured), deputy-CEO, Jersey Finance, said: 2We are seeing growth in Jersey’s private client, funds and corporate sectors right across the markets in the Far East and the Gulf region, so it’s important that we maintain a high level of visibility in these markets. Particularly as outbound and inbound Asian investments become more and more sophisticated, for instance, we are seeing real interest in Jersey for the listing of equity and dim sum bonds, for the structuring of offshore renminbi products, and for structuring property investments in the UK. Jersey’s Islamic Finance capabilities are being drawn on increasingly by clients in the Middle East too.”
