Guernsey Finance Names New Deputy Chairman

The new deputy chairman, who is a regular speaker at investment conferences and seminars, is also a frequent commentator for CNBC, Bloomberg and Sky.

Guernsey Finance’s board of directors has appointed Kevin Boscher as deputy chairman.

Boscher, who is chief investment officer at Ravenscroft, has taken on the role which will provide additional support to the board of the island’s promotional agency for financial services. He joins Paul Sykes, Kate Storey, Deputy Steve Falla, Guernsey Finance chief executive Rupert Pleasant and current deputy Lyndon Trott.

Boscher brings more than 35 years’ experience in financial services and investments. He has spent most of his career in the areas of portfolio management, fund management, asset allocation, investment strategy, fixed income, hedge funds, multi-manager investing and absolute return investing. Boscher will continue in his role at Ravenscroft with the Guernsey Finance position being a voluntary one.

He was educated at Elizabeth College, and holds the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) Chartered Wealth Manager qualification; he is a Chartered Fellow of the CISI.

"Kevin has had an impressive career in the area of asset management, and brings with him extensive, long-term knowledge of the global marketplace. In order for Guernsey to maintain and develop our hard-earned reputation as an international, award winning and competitive financial services centre of excellence, we will continue to welcome people of Kevin's calibre. I know Kevin is looking forward to playing his part, as we strive to maintain, develop and enhance our status in the fast moving and innovative world of international financial services," deputy Trott said.

Boscher said: “Having worked in the finance industry in Guernsey all my career, I have seen first-hand how the breadth and depth of experience within the industry together with many other positive attributes have enabled us to ‘punch well above our weight’ and become a global leader in many sectors of international finance. This is something we should celebrate and continue to promote for our future economic success. I have also worked with Guernsey Finance on a number of occasions and have been impressed with how they represent and promote the industry in a competent and effective way. I look forward to working with the board and the team to continue the good work."

“We are very excited about Kevin’s appointment. He brings deep analytical capability and insights into the finance industry domestically and internationally, and an understanding of the challenges and opportunities for Guernsey’s finance sector. We look forward to working with Kevin and Guernsey Finance to sustain the strength and success of Guernsey as a leading global finance centre,” GIBA chairman, Paul Sykes, said.
