Collas Crill group partner, Leon Santos, will be presenting on Guernsey’s expertise in the capital markets sector next month in Singapore.
The free-to-attend seminar, organised by Guernsey Finance, will take place at the Credit Suisse Wealth Institute, One Raffles Link on 7 November.
Leon has significant offshore and onshore experience advising fund managers, banks and corporations on fund establishment, investment structuring and operational issues. He will consider Guernsey’s capital markets offering, which includes the fact that the island is the global leader for non-UK entities listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).
Guernsey Finance Chief Executive Dominic Wheatley said: “Guernsey is an internationally-respected finance centre, as well as being the global leader in a number of areas such as UK listings, and we are keen to share this expertise with a wider audience in South East Asia. The case studies referred to at the event will show exactly how we do things in practice, the range of work that Guernsey-based practitioners are involved in and will demonstrate the advantages of doing business in Guernsey.”
The Singapore event is the latest initiative to coincide with Guernsey Finance’s increased focus on the South East Asia region, which included the opening of its Hong Kong office in March 2016. The representative office, which is located at Three Pacific Place in Admiralty, is the promotional agency's second overseas outpost in the region following its Shanghai office, which opened in 2007.
Registration for the event, which is titled Guernsey Seminar Series Singapore, takes place from 4.30pm, with the event itself getting underway at 5pm. It will conclude with a drinks reception from 6.15pm. For further information or to book a delegate place please visit the event website here.
