THE process of drawing up a formal financial services strategy for the island is to start this month.
Three industry workshops have been organised by the Commerce and Employment Department’s finance sector development unit for invited industry delegates to attend, along with representatives of the States and the GFSC. The first takes place at the end of January.
‘Our purpose is to consider the next decade and what sort of industry do we want at that time, and what jurisdictions do we want to be operating in,’ said Jarrod Cowley-Grimmond, director of finance sector development for the States, pictured.
‘To some extent you can say that we have always had a strategy – of low taxes, flexible regulation, innovative legislation, and getting out there and promoting ourselves.’
