Peregrine Corporate Services Limited (“Peregrine”), Maitland Group, Capital International Group and Optimus Group are heading out to South Africa to host their second roadshow between 10th and 13th February.
The four organisations will visit Johannesburg, Pretoria, Stellenbosch and Cape Town to deliver a variety of events all aimed at promoting the Isle of Man and its finance sector. The events will include Q&A panel sessions, private dinners and informal breakfast meetings, which aim to provide delegates with more information about overcoming the challenges of establishing and running Isle of Man structures and pensions, inform guests about the “Isle of Man journey”, and to continue building long-standing relationships between the two countries.
A delegation from the Isle of Man will travel out to South Africa ahead of the roadshow which will include Basil Bielich, Martin Hall and Kate Parrish (Peregrine), Colin Bird (Maitland), and Dave Thomas (Optimus), who will be met in South Africa by David Noon, Richard Johnson and Helen Jones (Capital), Vanessa Andrews (Optimus) and Anthea Stephens (Maitland).
“I’m pleased that our first roadshow last year was a great success,” enthused Basil. “A lot of time and hard work went into organising the trip and I think that showed in the level of positive feedback received from those who attended the events. Our first trip was about promoting the Isle of Man and what it has to offer as a jurisdiction; it’s good to see the Isle of Man Government and other companies following our lead by taking trips out to South Africa. This time round we are keen to build on that but we would also like to go into more depth about topical things we are facing such as tax transparency and economic substance. We are looking forward to welcoming our guests to our events in Johannesburg and Cape Town and are feeling positive about our trip.”
