Guernsey Finance has appointed Kate Clouston as its first Director of International Business Development.
Clouston, who joined Guernsey Finance this month, will be responsible for leading additional international business development work, with a particular focus on evaluating and developing new geographical markets. She will also be involved in identifying and implementing development strategies around emerging financial products and attracting new companies to Guernsey.
Clouston, who can speak six languages including Chinese and Arabic, has previous experience as a Programme Head for the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), the independent British think tank engaged in cutting-edge defence and security research, as a Media Analyst for Edelman StrategyOne, and as a Senior Researcher at the House of Commons.

Given her experience, we identified Kate as the ideal candidate for this newly created role and believe she will be a real asset not only to the Guernsey Finance team, but to the island's finance industry as a whole. Her communication skills are exemplary and I look forward to working in tandem with her as we target new markets and products for the benefit of Guernsey's finance industry."
