Club (N)ED

Executive and Non-Executive Director Support

from the Jersey International Business School

2012-2013



Club (N)ED

The world is a much tougher place for

directors of financial services businesses

and the funds and other corporate structures

they manage and administer. Boards face

a growing array of legal obligations and

rising expectations of their performance

following the credit crisis and a succession

of corporate scandals and failures. It is

imperative that all directors bring up-to-date

knowledge and skills to their work if Jersey is

to retain its premier offshore status, as well as

for their own protection.

Club (N)ED has been designed to equip

directors in Jersey with the information and

expertise they need to ensure that they remain

fully effective in the boardroom, as well as

being technically proficient in compliance

with their regulatory obligations. Members

will interact with directors from Jersey and

elsewhere, thus benefiting from the hard-won

experience of others in their peer group.

Format of the events will be interactive rather

than talk-and-tell.

When accepting any Board appointment

it is important to fully appreciate the

responsibilities and level of diligence

required in order to undertake the role in a

professional manner.

The Club (N)ED programme gives valuable

insight and advice, whilst providing an

opportunity to discuss relevant matters with

an experienced peer group. I would strongly

recommend the programme to all directors.

Ben Shenton, Chartered FCSI

Former Chairman – Public Accounts Committee/

Minister for Health and Social Services

Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), senior officers

of BCCI, and high-ranking members of Colombian drug cartels.

The dirty bankers and businessmen he befriended – some of whom

still shape power across the globe – knew him as Bob Musella, a

wealthy, mob-connected big shot living the good life. In the end

he led a dramatic takedown that shook the underworld and more

than eighty men and women were charged worldwide. Operation

C-Chase was described by the Director of the FBI as ‘one of the

largest money laundering prosecutions in US history’.
