Offshore finance expert has big plans for China in new role


Following a recent groundbreaking China visit, Guernsey Finance’s outgoing chief executive, Fiona Le Poidevin, told China Business Law Journal about her plans to prepare the ground for further China ties with the island in her new role.


“I have, with Guernsey Finance, developed relationships with the stock exchanges in Hong Kong – where we have specific approval for Guernsey companies to list on the exchange – Shanghai and Shenzhen,” Le Poidevin said.

“As I move to the Channel Islands Securities Exchange [as the new CEO from January 2015], one of my priorities will be to identify opportunities for the exchange in Asia, including China. Certainly I believe that the [exchange] should be promoted more heavily in the region and as such, I am hopeful that I’ll be able to build on some of those relationships that I have developed during my time at Guernsey Finance.”
