15 May

Navigate the future of funds at the Guernsey Funds Forum 2024.

At the event, you will gain access to new expertise through specialist speakers, such as opening keynote Miles Celic, CEO of TheCityUK, and engaging panel sessions, plus there’s plenty of opportunities to grow your network. 

The first panel titled: ‘Tech, sustainability and health assets – capital raising in today’s economic climate,’ explores capital raising in the current environment against the backdrop of a developing technological landscape, including AI. 

The second panel, titled: ‘Exploring the future of funds,’ will focus on continuation and follow-on funds, secondary markets, tokenisation, and ancillary vehicles and carried interest vehicles. 

The event will conclude with what promises to be a fascinating closing keynote speech from ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’ Sir Ranulph Fiennes. 

With five decades of experience as a mature financial services jurisdiction, Guernsey is perfectly placed to host two funds masterclass sessions on the morning of the event. These sessions are aimed at expanding the knowledge of emerging fund managers, associates, and future partners. 

At these educational masterclasses you will learn more from industry experts on why ‘There’s no place like Guernsey’ for fund domiciliation.  

If you have any queries on this event, please contact Leanne Cuttill or Fiona Murray.
