Guernsey Funds Forum
14 May 2020 - Online
2:00PM - 3:00PM
Sadly, for obvious reasons, we can’t be with you in London this year for our annual Guernsey Funds Forum.
However on our scheduled date of Thursday 14 May we are delighted to be able to offer you a webinar of topical debate for all areas of the investment funds industry.
We have two Guernsey-based speakers taking part in a virtual fireside chat, focusing mainly on the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the potential routes for recovery.
Turnaround expert Jon Moulton has called the pandemic "the biggest disruption of my working life".
And independent director Andreas Tautscher says the issues being faced, and the potential recovery solutions, look very different to that of the global financial crisis of 2008.
Meanwhile Guernsey’s funds sector is competitively placed at the start of a new decade, strengthened by economic substance provisions and a developing position in the growing sustainability sector. How will Guernsey deal with the pandemic and how will our funds sector emerge as we enter the "new normal"?
