International networking event in Guernsey

Thursday 01 June 2023

The Guernsey branches of two international women's groups have come together for a networking event offering women working in the trusts and insolvency and restructuring sectors a chance to make connections outside of their own businesses.

The joint International Women's Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation ("IWIRC") and International Ladies in Trusts Association ("ILITA") event was sponsored by law firm Walkers and held at La Vallette.

IWIRC is an organisation of women supporting women in the restructuring and insolvency industry, with more than 2,000 members worldwide. The Channel Islands Chapter of IWIRC was launched in November 2022 and it is the 53rd network globally.

Advocate Helena Lavin, a Senior Counsel in Walker's Guernsey Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team is Secretary of the Channel Islands chapter of IWIRC.

"Bringing these two organisations together for a joint networking event was a great opportunity, given how much cross-over there is between trusts and insolvency and restructuring work in the Islands," she said. 

ILITA was established in the Cayman Islands in 2014 and launched in the Channel Islands last year. ILITA connects and promotes women in the trusts profession at all stages of their careers. It offers events for social networking and professional development enabling those from the industry to forge and develop connections with others in the industry.

Kathryn Macken, Associate in Walkers' Guernsey Private Capital & Trusts team added: "It was excellent to see familiar faces from the local financial services industry making connections with our guests from Jersey and London. We look forward to hosting similar events both separately and under a joint banner this year."
