Jersey Finance, the promotional agency for the island's financial services industry, has appointed Richard Corrigan as Global Head of Business Development to lead the agency's international offices in Abu Dhabi, India and Hong Kong, and boost the financial services industry's existing ties with the United Kingdom, Europe and Russia.

Corrigan joins Jersey Finance from the banking sector where he has held senior roles with Barclays Wealth and Royal Bank of Scotland International in a number of financial centers. Most recently he was a Director at Barclays Wealth in Jersey. He has also been a committee member of the Jersey Bankers Association and is a member of the Prince’s Trust Steering Group for Jersey.

Commenting on his appointment Geoff Cook, Chief Executive of Jersey Finance, said: "I am delighted that we have been able to recruit such a high caliber individual as Richard to lead our overseas business development activities. He has a wealth of experience both in Jersey and in international markets and I know that his knowledge, drive and energy will be enormously helpful in harnessing the numerous business growth opportunities which lie in both our traditional and developing markets."

Corrigan added: "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 center."
