Ashfords Partner and sports expert Jamie Horner, who organised the event, said: "We are delighted to be sponsoring Jason and Ignacio during the Chiefs' fantastic first season in the Premiership.
"Members of Exeter's rugby mad business community came out in force to rub shoulders with the new arrivals from New Zealand and Argentina and also to compare and contrast the liquid assets of both countries. We are also grateful to Eoghan Grace who attended with his sponsor Chancery Asset Management.
"All at Ashfords would like to wish the Chiefs a very successful Christmas and New Year!"
