'Jersey: Booming into Brexit?'
Is Brexit more of an opportunity than a threat to Jersey?
Media coverage around the implications of Brexit is often full of doom and gloom, with the impact on the high street, markets and real estate already being felt.
Our June Chamber Lunch will focus on a more positive, market-based analysis exploring some of the reasons why Jersey businesses might feel confident about the impact of the UK leaving the European Union. These include:
- The rationale for the “end of the world” prognosis.
- A brief economic analysis of Brexit.
- Practical market experience and examples of deal flow based around Jersey’s unique position as a conduit for capital into Europe.
- Reasons to be cheerful from our island's political and regulatory position and attractive, open cultural perspective.
Our guest speaker for June is James Gaudin, partner at Appleby and leader of the Structured Finance Team here in Jersey. Specialising in all areas of offshore corporate, finance and restructuring work, James works with clients worldwide, all of whom have a view on Brexit. From his global perspective, he will outline why Jersey's particular relationship with the EU might present valuable new business opportunities for our island.
The venue for this lunch is the Royal Yacht Hotel and guests should arrive no later than 12.30. The Chamber President will be delivering his welcome speech at 12.40, followed by lunch.
We will seek to close the event by 14.30.
The menu for this event will be: Baked fillet of cod with parmentier potatoes, creamed savoy cabbage, saffron cream.
