Guernsey announces Funds Forum speaker

Posted: 11/03/2019

A key figure in London’s green finance sector will be the keynote speaker at the Guernsey Funds Forum in London on 16 May.

Sir Roger Gifford is Chairman of the City of London Corporation, the body responsible for running London’s Square Mile, which launched the London Green Finance Initiative in January 2016 in partnership with the UK government to further the contribution of the financial sector to the G20 climate agenda.

Roger visited the island in 2016 to discuss how Guernsey could work with the City on the project. He is also Chair of the UK government’s Green Finance Task Force, as well as a former Lord Mayor of London and a senior banker with SEB in London.

The half-day event, entitled Restart, will explore the narrative for the future and how Guernsey can be the ideal location for investment funds in 2020 and beyond.

It will also feature two panel sessions. The first will be on green and sustainable finance, with panellists including Guernsey Finance Deputy Chief Executive and Guernsey Green Finance Chairman Dr Andy Sloan, Jeremy Alun-Jones of ADM Capital, Richard Burrett of Earth Capital and Helen Mahy of Renewables Infrastructure Group.

The second panel focuses on structuring private capital. Panellists include Bridget Barker of Zedra London, David Williams of Simmons & Simmons, Kevin Luck of JP Morgan and David Crosland of Carey Olsen.
