02 March 2016
Whitmill Trust enjoyed treating all those who attended the 2016 Annual Jersey Finance London Funds Conference to a scrumptious ‘Whitmill Afternoon Tea.’
Entitled ‘Clear Direction’, the 2016 Jersey Finance Annual London Funds Conference brought together a range of world-class funds professionals to discuss the key issues currently shaping the global funds landscape.
The conference included keynote speeches from Director of the OECD’s Center for Tax Policy, Pascal Saint-Amans, who presented on the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project, and renowned broadcaster, Nick Robinson, who offered his insights into current UK and global political trends.
During two discussion sessions involving a number of experts in their field, the half-day event examined global trends right across the alternative funds spectrum, including real estate, private equity, hedge, debt and infrastructure. Speakers provided an insight into Jersey’s role as a centre for fund servicing and management, and in supporting funds flows spanning Asia, the GCC, Europe, Africa and the US. Behavioural economist and award-winning Financial Times columnist, Tim Harford delivered the closing address.
