December 17, 2012

Funds professionals in Jersey will be entertained by one of the UK’s top live comedians at the Jersey Funds Association annual dinner in 2013.

Ed Byrne, who appears regularly on Mock the Week and Have I Got News For You and has presented numerous programmes for Channel 4 and MTV, will be guest speaker at the dinner which takes place on 15th March at the Hotel de France.

Further musical entertainment will be provided during and after dinner by renowned musician Joe Stilgoe and MOBO-nominated singer-songwriter Natalie Williams.

The black tie event, whose lead sponsor is bespoke fund administration and custody services provider Kleinwort Benson, will begin at 6.45pm with a champagne reception sponsored by BNP Securities Services.  Silver sponsors of the event, which regularly attracts over 400 people, are Ipes, JP Morgan, JTC Group and Moore Group.

Nigel Strachan, Chairman of the Jersey Funds Association

Nigel Strachan commented:

“The JFA dinner is a fantastic way to recognise the efforts of all funds professionals who continuously work hard to ensure Jersey maintains its position as a leading European funds centre. The entertainment yet again is first class and I look forward to welcoming Ed Byrne, Joe Stilgoe and Natalie Williams to Jersey in March. The dinner is always popular so I encourage people to book as soon as possible in order to secure themselves a place at a key fixture in Jersey’s funds calendar.”
