James Duffield, our Head of Business Development is set to speak at the 2017 Jersey Finance Annual London Funds Conference. Entitled ‘New Perspectives’, the conference will explore the significant geopolitical shifts witnessed throughout 2016 and the political, market and regulatory implications for the global funds industry.
The half-day event has a packed agenda and brings together world-class funds experts to debate the disruption seen over the past year. It will focus on whether this might present opportunities for innovation in the investment funds space, and how Jersey is adapting to the new-look environment and enhancing its funds platform.
James will sit on the first session of the day, which will discuss ‘Innovation Through Disruption’. He will join a panel of experts, including Jonathan Pugh-Smith of Bregal Investments LLP, Robert Mellor from PwC and Vistra’s Jane Pearce. The panel will be moderated by well-known Today presenter and former political editor Nick Robinson, who will also offer his insights into UK and global political trends.
The lineup of speakers this year is particularly impressive, with numerous high-profile individuals including Jonathan Bullock, SoftBank’s COO and director of their famed $100billion Vision Fund, the world’s largest technology fund.
The conference, starts at 12.30pm at 8 Northumberland Avenue on Tuesday 21 March. If you would like to view the full agenda or find out more about the event please visit the Jersey Finance website.
