Description

The succession of GCC businesses has never been so in focus.

Family businesses are the cornerstone of the GCC economies. In uncertain times and with substantial wealth in the process of passing to a new generation, legacy planning and good governance have never been more relevant topics for both local and long term expat families. But which tools and techniques will help them?

International solutions often have limited appeal to GCC families for key assets such as regional operating businesses and real estate, either for legal or cultural reasons.

Various parts of the world have developed their own solutions or adapted foreign ones to their specific needs, but the GCC has been later in looking at this, in no small part as many businesses are only now approaching their first intergenerational transfer.

Increasingly more flexible and sophisticated types of corporate and legacy planning tools are being introduced by the various regional financial centres. And more is to come particularly at the UAE domestic level.

The objective of this conference is to provide delegates with the latest regional legacy planning developments and practical examples from leading industry experts, as well as a taste of the potential solutions under consideration.

The previously unattainable goal of effective onshore GCC structuring is now becoming a reality, representing a seismic shift for MENA wealth planning.

We look forward to welcoming you to the region’s premier wealth planning and networking event.
