Helen Hatton is one of the architects of Jersey’s financial services regulatory framework. She spent ten years as Deputy Director General of the Jersey Financial Services Commission, helping set up the regime which has seen the island flourish as a modern, respected international finance centre. Since leaving the JFSC, she has carried out international assessment work for the FATF and IMF, and is getting ready to celebrate ten years as the Managing Director of Sator, now BDO Sator, a regulatory consulting practice which she founded. Gwyn Garfield-Bennett went to meet her to get her thoughts on the current regulatory environment.
It's been a busy start to the year for many - not least because of the uncertainties that prevail from Brexit. In this issue we take a look at the Channel Islands' economies, and see how both Jersey and Guernsey are faring.
We have interviews with some of our islands' most experienced professionals, including the queen of compliance, Helen Hatton and Guerney-loving Lord Digby Jones, the former Director-General of the CBI.
We welcome both the Guernsey and Jersey Chambers of Commerce news and information into Business Brief this month, and reflect our links to businesses new and old, small and large, with our entrepreneur interview and advice columns - including free digital marketing tools and how to use Facebook messenger to promote your business.
We take a look at the Funds industry in Jersey and Guersey and we ask if the four day working week could solve our skills shortage. Plus there is the usual news round-up from our finance, legal and digital industries.
A packed issue - here's to a prosperous and happy new year.
