Midshore starts US operation

Posted: 10/10/2019

ChrisJehan and SonyaSlater_MidshoreGuernsey-based regulatory specialist Midshore Consulting has announced the incorporation of a joint venture in the US.

Midshore Consulting USA, incorporated in Florida, will operate throughout North America and the Caribbean. The business is jointly owned by Midshore Guernsey and Sonya Slater, formerly employed by Investec Asset Management in the global role of Head of Fund Operations.

Sonya has spent 34 years with Investec Asset Management in a variety of roles, including Director of management companies in the UK and Luxembourg, and Conducting Officer for a Luxembourg-based UCITS. 

In her global role, Sonya managed teams across seven jurisdictions (UK, Luxembourg, Guernsey, US, South Africa, Hong Kong and Taiwan) and had responsibility for funds in the UK, Luxembourg, Guernsey, Dublin, US, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Australia and Mauritius. 

Midshore USA aims to replicate the service lines offered in Guernsey, with the Guernsey team supporting its services. Sonya has taken on the role of President of Midshore USA, with Christopher Jehan (Managing Director of Midshore Guernsey) as its Vice President.

Christopher Jehan commented: “Our American joint venture aims to feed more US-sourced work into the island, utilising both our services and those of the local financial services sector. As an island, we have already seen an increase in business flows from the US – Guernsey ticks many of the boxes that the Caribbean offshore centres do not.”
