Guernsey Private Wealth Forum
05 October 2021 - London
2:00PM - 5:30PM
THE POWER OF CAPITAL
Join WE ARE GUERNSEY at the Banking Hall in London on 5 October as we celebrate a return to hosting physical events with the return of our annual Private Wealth Forum.
Titled 'The Power of Capital', the Guernsey Private Wealth Forum 2021 will explore the topical and pressing conversations surrounding the good that wealth can do. As the days of investing solely to turn an economic return on investment appear to be well and truly over, today’s families and investors want investments which are not just good now but good for the future, too. They want a social as well as an economic return.
As a force for global good, Guernsey has developed a reputation for successfully channelling wealth into solving the issues that families and investors care about. Combining this with more than 50 years’ experience in providing specialist private wealth services, and the breadth and depth of experienced professionals including in fiduciary, investment management, tax and legal services, Guernsey is better placed than most to facilitate this discussion.
We are thrilled to be opening this year’s event with a keynote speech delivered by Cherie Blair CBE. The renowned barrister, lecturer, writer, and philanthropist will outline the importance of ‘moral capital’, and how philanthropic action through her Foundation has successfully transformed the lives of more than 100,000 women in several low and middle-income economies.
Turning to provide a Guernsey update, Sally Rochester, Risk and Regulation Director at Deloitte LLP, will outline the significant steps that have been made in Guernsey towards aligning the island with the world’s major economies as the island celebrates the publication of its roadmap to becoming a UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative 21st Century Fiduciary Duty jurisdiction.
Following this, a panel of experts commanded by Elaine Gray, Head of Dispute Resolution and Litigation at Carey Olsen, will delve deeper into the events’ key themes – notably to explore how philanthropy fits into this ever-evolving landscape that sees patient capital on the rise. We are pleased to introduce Rennie Hoare, Partner & Head of Philanthropy at C. Hoare & Co; and Julia Mensink, Head of Impact at Acumen.
