More than 150 trust and private wealth specialists from Cayman, the U.K. and the U.S. will attend Mourant Ozannes’ trust and private client forum at the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa on Friday, Oct. 6.
The full-day conference, now in its seventh year, brings together professionals from across the wealth sector and many speakers. The event is chaired by Mourant Ozannes Global Head of International Trusts & Private Client, Jim Edmondson.
Lawyers from Mourant Ozannes’ Trusts & Private Client team will be joined by experts to debate key issues for trusts and trustees under this year’s conference theme “Seeking certainty in uncertain times.”
Mr. Edmondson said, “Facing increased regulation, the erosion of confidentiality and negative media coverage, the financial services sector in the offshore market is going through a period of unprecedented and persistent uncertainty.”
The 2017 program is designed to explore these concerns, he said. “It promises to give attendees some real food for thought as well as practical direction to take back to their own organizations.”
Speakers include Charlie Sosna (Mischon de Reya), Jude Scott (Cayman Finance), Richard Wilson QC (Serle Court), Jenny McKeown (Stephenson Harwood), Mona Vaswani (Allen & Overy), Jonathan Riley (Michelmores LLP), Nicholas Holland (McDermott Will & Emery), Andrew Needham (Sackville Bank), Matthew Braithwaite (Bircham Dyson Bell), Emily Exton (Forsters LLP), Hal J. Webb (Bilzin Sumberg), Nicole Mann (McDermott Will & Emery) and Jeff Millington (Smith & Williamson).
The conference is sponsored by Smith & Williamson, Fund Finance Partners and NCB Cayman Ltd.
