Offshore Advisers

‘The negative connotations that used to be attached to offshore jurisdictions seem to have dwindled,’ says head of the Jersey family office division at Stonehage Fleming, Ana Ventura. ‘Jersey is so highly regulated that you don’t describe it as an offshore tax haven anymore because that’s not the driving force behind people coming to live here,’ she adds. Ventura joined the group in 2002, having previously worked at Investec Bank. She now provides wide-ranging services for international HNW families. Of late her clients have been particularly focused on the recent non-dom legislation changes: ‘It’s all in good stead because the changes are now coming into effect and are retrospective,’ Ventura says.
