Spotlight On Jersey Finance Flagship Conference

Political editor, broadcaster and journalist, Robert Peston, will provide a keynote address at the Jersey Finance private wealth conference in London in September.

The Jersey Finance Private Wealth Conference will feature a group of UK-based wealth management professionals. In two panel debates, participants will be pinpointing the opportunities and challenges facing the global private client industry in 2023 and beyond, the firm said in a statement.

Robert Peston, host of flagship current affairs show ‘Peston’, started his career on television as an economics editor. Prior to that, he was a business editor reporting on the tumult of the credit crunch and the global financial crisis.

The Jersey Finance conference entitled ‘Strategies for a World in Transition’ will examine how high net worth individuals the world over can protect their wealth, plan for long-term growth and ensure a successful transfer of their legacy. 

The two panels have been invited to discuss ‘Political Risk in a Changing World: Implications for International Investors’ and ‘Balancing Legacy and Sustainability: The Dual Responsibility of Wealth Management.’ On each panel, participants will be UK-based professionals spanning the industry sectors to provide a wide perspective, the firm continued. 

The event will be staged at The Brewery conference venue in central London. Joe Moynihan, chief executive officer, Jersey Finance, will introduce the programme and also deliver a keynote address. “Within a complex geopolitical background including war in Ukraine, supply chain issues, high inflation and a cost-of-living crisis, energy sector disruption, market volatility and increasing regulatory demands, we will showcase Jersey’s strengths as a leading international finance centre. We will highlight how our stability, resilience, innovation and attractive ecosystem of professional expertise, remains a robust platform to support the objectives of the private wealth industry during these volatile and uncertain times,” Moynihan said.

More than 400 delegates are expected to attend the event, which will take place on Tuesday 26 September; it will include a networking reception before and afterwards. Sponsors are Affinity Private Wealth, Carey Olsen, Crestbridge Family Office Services, Highvern, Investec Bank (Channel Islands) Ltd, Lloyds Bank International, Standard Chartered, Suntera Global, TMF Group, VG, Vistra and Walkers.
