Global estate planning for Asian high net worth individuals
The number of high net worth individuals (HNWIs) and their wealth continue to surge significantly, and some research analysis indicates that Asia-Pacific could be home to the largest HNWI population and the region with the most HNWI wealth globally. Asset protection, preservation and succession planning loom in the forefront for HNWIs, and are particularly urgent for the baby boomer generation who are considering the transition of their wealth. Join the speakers who will discuss the pertinent issues in this growing area of practice, such as the rationale for global estate planning, available structures and legal solutions, pitfalls to bear in mind, choice of jurisdictions, and the need to be relatable to the cultural norms, preferences and sentiments of their HNWI clients.
