Hospitality backed by Close Finance Channel Islands

As featured on ChannelEye:

Close Finance Channel Islands, the lending firm that services individuals and businesses in Guernsey, today announces its new sponsorship agreement with Guernsey Hospitality Association.

The loans specialist prides itself on being an integrated part of the island community, which includes helping the people and businesses of the Channel Islands thrive in the long term.

Kevin Harris, Director for Close Finance Guernsey, said: “As a business, we’re strongly committed to supporting the island and its people to flourish.

“The last few years have been incredibly difficult in the hospitality and tourism sector because of issues like Brexit, the pandemic and more recently, the increase in the cost of living. But the industry is one of the most crucial pillars in our community. It provides jobs, it strengthens our economy, and it provides wonderful experiences for the islanders and our visitors. Without it, Guernsey would lose so much of its spark.

“At Close Finance, we’re especially keen to support the small, yet vital, businesses in this industry that add so much uniqueness to our communities. Our sponsorship agreement with the GHA will support those businesses to continue to succeed.”

“The Guernsey Hospitality Association is very grateful for Close Finance’s support” said Alan Sillett, President of the Guernsey Hospitality Association.

“This new agreement will assist in facilitating our continued initiatives to support the industry, for the benefit of locals and visitors alike.”
