COMMISSION MARKS FIFTH YEAR
A series of events, held this summer by the Jersey Financial Services Commission, will mark the Fifth Anniversary since the Commission was formed, with independent status in 1998. The programme is designed to involve all those 'stakeholders' with whom the Commission is involved: the Jersey public, Jersey's finance industry and international regulators and investors.
The key initiatives are:
JFSC Director General, Richard Pratt said: "The Commission has worked with the industry over the past five years to build an international reputation for the Island as a well regulated finance centre with good quality, innovative business. Notwithstanding the weakness in world markets at the present time - which is having an effect in the Island, there has been substantial growth in financial services over the period and we are better placed to reap the opportunities the future will bring. This, our fifth year is a good opportunity for us to report to the people of Jersey what we have done in their name - as well as keeping the Island's finance industry - informed of developments in regulation.
The seminar also provides a valuable opportunity to offer finance professionals practical advice on tackling issues in their daily work through an interactive format and discussion groups. We look forward to welcoming as many of the industry as possible; the event will have appeal for both Chief Executives and Senior Managers within any financial services organisation on the Island."
Places (£75.00 per delegate per day) are available on a first-come, first-served basis and application forms are available from the Financial Services Commission website at: www.jerseyfsc.org
