The latest update from London Representative Christine Gill

In February I attended the annual SuperReturn International private equity and venture capital conference in Berlin, leading the Guernsey Finance funds delegation which included representatives from Northern Trust, Mourant, Altair Partners and Trident Trust. The attendee numbers were affected this year by COVID-19, but delegates who were in attendance were engaged with the We Are Guernsey stand and particularly interested in the Cayman vs Guernsey literature. Global distribution was a reoccurring talking point during conversations. The Guernsey Finance wine tasting was well attended and productive.

I also attended the IBA private wealth conference in March. The Guernsey delegation present at the two-day conference at the Four Season Hotel included Trident Trust, Millar Trust and Albecq Trust. Again, the numbers were lower than last year, but the We Are Guernsey stand hosted a number of conversations with delegates on Trust Law and presented the our Global Trends in Family Offices report to practitioners who were new to the Jurisdiction.
