The Brexit negotiations, financial technology and protectionism - why Jersey is a tried, tested and confident choice for fund administration.
Simon Page was invited to partake in a recent roundtable hosted by Funds Europe, and involving some of the finest Jersey fund technicians.
The write-up of their discussion draws on various perspectives and opinions. This is a very relevant read for anyone unsure or uncertain about which changes will bring opportunities or challenges for global fund structuring.
The discussion questions are:
- What strategies are EU, UK and other fund managers taking as regards Brexit? What does it mean for Jersey?
- Which asset classes are particularly buoyant in Jersey, and why?
- How has Jersey responded to the OECD’s base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) project?
Panellists included Peggy Gielen (technical manager, Jersey Finance); Tim Morgan (partner, Mourant Ozannes); Mark Hucker (managing director, VG); Mike Byrne (chairman, Jersey Funds Association, and partner, PwC); Niamh Lalor (partner, Ogier); Simon King (director, Aztec Group).
