Top comedian to entertain funds professionals at annual dinner

January 25, 2012

Funds professionals in Jersey will be entertained by a Perrier and Sony award-winning comedian at the annual Jersey Funds Association (JFA) Dinner this year.

Milton Jones, who regularly features on Radio 4, has appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and is a writer on the BBC series Not Going Out, will be the guest speaker at the dinner, which takes place on 9th March at the Hotel de France.

The lead sponsors of the event are private equity fund services firm Ipes and financial services firm JP Morgan. The evening will begin at 6.45pm with a champagne reception, sponsored by BNP Securities Services. Musical entertainment will be provided before and after the dinner by Joe Stilgoe, whose singing, piano playing and sense of humour have made him a favourite at the UK’s top jazz clubs, where he regularly plays.

Nigel Strachan, Chairman of the Jersey Funds Association, said:

“Whilst the past year has been challenging for the funds industry globally, funds professionals in Jersey have worked tirelessly to ensure that we have been able to maintain our position as a leading European funds centre. The annual flagship JFA dinner is an excellent way to recognise the work that has been put in over the past twelve months and to look forward to what I believe can be a successful year ahead.”
