Issue 60 of Businesslife now online!

Posted: 02/01/2019

BL60 coverIssue 60 of Businesslife is now available online. 

For the first issue of 2019, we have assembled a panel of financial services and technology experts from across the Channel Islands to share their predictions for the next 12 months. Meeting growing demand for ethical investment opportunities, managing consolidation across several sectors, and harnessing the benefits of technologies such as artificial intelligence are all on the agenda. Brexit also looms large.

Eila Madden, Editor-in-Chief of Businesslife, commented: “Thanks to its unique position as a bridge between the UK and the EU, the Channel Islands offers investors affected by Brexit stable and continued access to the EU market.

"Those investors are likely to be encouraged by the islands’ economic and political stability, and its well regulated environment. In 2019, businesses across the islands should be ready to capitalise on this post-Brexit opportunity.” 

We also explore what China will offer Channel Islands businesses in 2019. With Beijing increasingly looking beyond its own borders for investment, this could be the year the islands reap the rewards of previous investment in their relationship with China.

This issue’s lead interview is with Louise Bracken-Smith, co-founder and CEO of Fairway Group. In a consolidating market, this Jersey-based fiduciary business has remained what it describes as ‘consciously independent’. Louise tells Businesslife why the company isn’t up for sale and how she plans to take it forward. 

And, in a change to the magazine, we bid farewell to The Agenda and introduce The Knowledge – a section of brain food for the busy business professional, which includes a mix of reviews, interviews, profiles and top tips to help readers excel in the workplace.

Other features in this issue include:
• Project management: why projects need professionals at their helm to succeed
• Automation: calls grow for employers to share the benefits of automation with their staff
• Corporate governance: board directors come under pressure to go beyond their statutory duties
• US tax: what President Donald Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act means for the Channel Islands
• Private equity: PE houses change tack on origination and exit strategies as competition for targets hots up

The hard copy version of the magazine will be available from its usual distribution points shortly.
