Jersey appoints global head of business development

Richard Corrigan, formerly director for Barclays Wealth in Jersey, has been appointed global head of business development for Jersey Finance.

According to Jersey Finance, Corrigan will be responsible for global offices in Abu Dhabi, India and Hong Kong, while retaining a personal focus on extending the profile of Jersey’s finance industry in the UK, Europe and Russia.

Commenting on his new role, Corrigan said: “with ever increasing mobility of international capital, it is vital that Jersey seeks out fresh opportunities and new markets whilst continuing to invest in the strong relationships that have served us so well within the United Kingdom, particularly the City of London. I look forward to working with member firms and colleagues to stimulate increased business for the jurisdiction and continue to reinforce the view amongst international practitioners of Jersey as a well-regulated and respected international finance centre.”
