Jersey: A Valued Partnership

*This content is brought to you by Jersey Finance

Jersey Finance is delighted to be hosting a series of 2017 private wealth focused events in South Africa this November. Entitled ‘Jersey: A Valued Partnership’, these events will take place in Cape Town on Thursday 9 November, and in Johannesburg on Monday 13 November.

The events further demonstrate Jersey’s well-established, strong and positive business ties with Africa. Already regarded a jurisdiction of choice for African investors for its range of private wealth management services, Jersey continues to work with HNW families and corporates to legitimately internationalise and diversify their wealth, providing solutions for their current and future needs.

Jersey’s appeal is clearly based on two key ingredients for African investors – substance and stability, which continue to be vital to the jurisdiction’s success against the backdrop of shifting markets and a changing global political landscape. The Island’s firm foundation of political and economic stability, combined with its forward-thinking approach and comprehensive legal and regulatory framework, give Jersey the international pedigree to appeal to investors throughout the African continent.

Led by Allan Wood, Business Development Director, Jersey Finance, the ‘Jersey: A Valued Partnership’ events will explore the common issues facing many HNW families and businesses, such as the transition of wealth from one generation to the next, current tax issues, and the need for good corporate governance.

Political analyst Daniel Silke

Daniel Silke, one of South Africa’s leading political economy analysts and most passionate keynote speakers, will deliver an insightful presentation on political and economic trends from a South African, African and global perspective.

The lunch-time events will also feature two panel sessions with several leading industry experts, who will offer their insights on a number of recent trends themes. The first, ‘Wealth Structuring in a Transparent World’, will explore some of the key issues currently shaping the private wealth landscape, such as global tax transparency, CRS, South Africa’s tax amnesty, succession planning and the recent UK measures affecting offshore ownership. Meanwhile, in the second panel session, “Diversification/traditional investments vs alternative investments”, panellists will provide fresh insights into the UK property market, international investment portfolios and alternative assets such as classic cars, which have been rapidly increasing in value.
