Carey Olsen's Annette Alexander joins Guernsey Green Finance's '20 for 20' network

Carey Olsen corporate partner Annette Alexander has been confirmed as a member of the Guernsey Green Finance ‘20 for 20’ Business Leaders for Sustainable Finance Network.

The aim of the network is to build a community of business leaders and influencers committed to action to catalyse the development of Guernsey’s green and sustainable finance sector. Each business leader pledges to support strategic action on green and sustainable finance; promoting the cause of green and sustainable finance in their personal actions; and to support the work and goals of Guernsey Green Finance.

Already a member of the Guernsey Green Finance industry working group, Annette advises on the formation of all types of alternative investment funds, including private equity funds, listed funds, hedge funds, sustainable investment funds and property funds as well as banking and finance transactions. She is now one of six inaugural '20 for 20' network members.

She said: "The 20 for 20 Group is a fantastic initiative and shows that Guernsey is serious about remaining at the forefront of developments in the green and sustainable space. Carey Olsen advised the first regulated green fund of its kind in the world, and I'm therefore delighted, on behalf of the firm, to be invited to join the group as one of 20 green business leaders."

20 for 20 members will also support leadership development and green finance education in the island. Guernsey Green Finance is organising a conference in the island next month, and rolling out education courses, with the aim to increase understanding of sustainable business and how Guernsey can support its development, both on and off the island.

Guernsey Green Finance is a member of United Nations’ Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S), a network of the world’s leading finance centres seeking to accelerate green and sustainable finance.
