Meanwhile, leading political broadcaster Andrew Marr and celebrated sports journalist, award-winning author and performance expert Matthew Syed will give keynote speeches at the Jersey Finance Annual Private Wealth Conference on 26 September.

Commenting on the upcoming conferences, Joe Moynihan, CEO of Jersey Finance, said: “Engaging with our key London audience on issues that really resonate with them is absolutely vital and with our series of high-profile speakers across both of our flagship events in London this year, I’m convinced we will achieve that and provoke some interesting, positive debate.
