Guernsey Finance team in South Africa roadshow
A GUERNSEY roadshow to South Africa is set to extol the benefits of the island’s finance industry – with a focus on private wealth.
The delegation is being led by James Crawford, pictured, who is international business development director at promotional agency Guernsey Finance.
Previous trips to Cape Town and Johannesburg by the promotional agency have been funds and pensions-related.
‘Guernsey has a good relationship in South Africa in terms of private wealth and funds,’ he said.
‘Over the years we have seen fund and trust and company structures set up in the island for South Africa residents.
‘This time, we will be discussing trust and company structures, family office opportunities and substance.
‘We are looking forward to explaining what Guernsey can offer a firm’s clients in terms of private wealth structures, promoting Guernsey as a leading specialist centre, building on our existing private wealth relationships and connecting our Guernsey delegation with key firms that would generate a potential business opportunity.’
He added: ‘There is potential for providing firms and their clients with structures which cater for confidentiality, asset protection and succession planning.’
The Guernsey Finance South Africa private wealth roadshow runs from 2 to 7 September.
Mr Crawford will be joined by representatives from Cannon Asset Management, Carey Olsen and Maitland Fiduciary Services.
