Crestbridge sponsors Jersey Finance funds conference in London

Taking place on 24 April at the prestigious 8 Northumberland Avenue, the conference entitled ‘A Future Focus’ will bring together a range of world-class funds professionals to discuss the vital issues currently shaping the global funds landscape. 

World-leading AI commentator, Professor Nick Bostrom, has been confirmed as the keynote speaker for the event and two panel discussions will look at the opportunities for the alternatives asset classes and the major changes impacting the funds industry. Additionally, the conference will also feature the findings of Jersey Finance’s latest report, ‘Jersey for Institutional Investors.’ 

Michael Newton, Head of Fund Services, and Elliot Refson, Director of Management Company Services, will also be attending the conference and will be on hand to talk with delegates about how Crestbridge has the multi-jurisdictional capabilities to support clients no matter where they are, including providing tailored administration services as well as governance and substance solutions to a wide range of fund structures and strategies ultimately offering stability and certainty for clients in an uncertain landscape. 

Both Michael and Elliot have also contributed to a special report on Jersey published by Funds Europe, which will be made available at the conference. Mike’s article, Mainstream Alternatives, focuses on the trends across alternative assets, how they’re growing and, more specifically, how Jersey fits in. Atlantic Connection and Substantial Clarity are the two articles Elliot contributed towards which focuses on the opportunities Jersey can offer US-based fund managers wanting to access Europe.
