Former Banking Head To Lead Cayman Finance

by Phillip Morton, Investors

08 February 2013

Cayman Finance, the organization formed to represent the Cayman Island's financial services industry, has confirmed the appointment of Gonzalo Jalles, the former head of HSBC Cayman, as Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect.

Formerly the Chief Executive Officer of HSBC's Cayman Branch, Jalles formed his own financial services consulting company, Javelin Group, in 2012. Prior to his six-year tenure at HSBC Cayman, Jalles worked as Director of International Development at the firm's London offices, Managing Director at HSBC Bermuda, and Chief Investment Officer at HSBC Argentina.

Until last year, Jalles was President of the Cayman Islands Bankers' Association making him ideally placed to represent the local financial services industry.

Jalles commented: “Cayman Finance plays a crucial role promoting and supporting Cayman’s financial services industry both at home and abroad. The organization has become the central, leading voice for Cayman’s financial services industry when speaking to governments locally and internationally, as well as with local and international media. I therefore take on this important role fully aware of the responsibility placed upon me and I am grateful for the opportunity to help ensure that Cayman’s voice is continued to be heard within the international financial community.”
