Finance Celebrates – Let’s Celebrate Finance

On September 12, 2011, in The Economy, by Lyndon-Farnham
THE 50th anniversary of the Island’s finance industry was celebrated on Friday evening 9th September 2011, with a Golden Gala at the Hotel de France.   Although the accent of the evening was firmly on celebration and enjoyment, the chief executive of Jersey Finance Ltd, Geoff Cook, reminded the 500 guests, many of them finance sector employees, that the industry occupies a special place in Island society.  He said: ‘We are not just finance workers: we are people who care about where we live. We are parents who coach football teams and volunteer at schools, people who work for and support charities by running, walking, baking and giving. (JEP 12th Sept’ 2011)
 
This industry has contributed so much to our prosperity over and above its economic contribution that it is almost impossible to imagine Jersey without it.  Whilst I will always enthusiastically promote the benefits of  Tourism, Agriculture and other new and emerging industries, I will also fully support, in every way I can, our finance industry.
