Journal issue 1, 2021

Welcome to the first issue of the STEP Journal for 2021. This issue has a special focus on charity and philanthropy, which has never been more relevant or important to private client advisors. We also shine a spotlight on the UK and Ireland, providing updates on immigration, capital gains tax on divorce, and recent developments from the courts. This issue also features a thought leadership piece on wealth taxes in a post-COVID world, and looks at a new model for practitioners working with ultra-high-net-worth families.
