Past, Present & Future: Investor Prospectus launch
“St Helena has a remarkable past and a future that crackles with the electric tension of anticipation”, so said Jeremy Harris, Director of the St Helena National Trust. Jeremy was speaking at an event jointly hosted between the National Trust and Enterprise St Helena (ESH).
The event – entitled ‘St Helena – Past, Present & Future’ – took place at the Royal Geographic Society’s headquarters in Kensington, London, last Friday evening (3rd July). As well as Jeremy and ESH’s Chief Executive, Dr Niall O’Keefe, the audience also heard from Beverly Warmington, DFID’s Director for Asia, Caribbean and Overseas Territories. Following the presentations the invited guests were given a guided private viewing of the Society’s collections related to St Helena.
Dr O’Keeffe arrived in London earlier that day, having previously attended an event in Cape Town, South Africa. Both events represented opportunities for Dr O’Keeffe to promote ESH’s Investor Prospectus, a new publication prepared by the organisation which lists all the investment opportunities now available on the island.
Commenting on the investment opportunities now available on the island, Dr O’ Keeffe said, “As the latest tourism destination to catch the eye of the international travel market, St Helena presents significant opportunity to early adopting investors with vision.
“St Helena’s attraction does not only lie in its remoteness, but also in its unique character – contrasting and spectacular scenery, a rich cultural heritage and an environment extremely rich in biodiversity. We are looking for partners to benefit from the sustainable incremental growth of the tourism industry here. There are great opportunities for people and organisations who share the sense of heritage and culture on the Island.”
A multi-layered fort, which could be used to create a world class hotel with stunning views; Bertrand’s Cottage, located close to Longwood House, the home of exiled Napoleon, and the entire Wharf in Jamestown, parts of which date back to the 16th century. These are some of the opportunities now being made available to investors.
