Martin Crawford as panellist at “Wealth THINK 2016”

Vistra Group CEO Martin Crawford was invited to be a panellist at Wealth THINK 2016, Hubbis’s first Hong Kong-based summit of leaders in wealth management from Asia and globally. Over 350 senior practitioners attended the event held on 7 June 2016. They comprised CEOs, COOs, senior management, business heads and product gatekeepers, working within Private Banking, Retail Banking, Independent Wealth Management / Family Offices, IFAs, Insurance, Asset Management, Insurance, Technology, and Professional Services.

In the panel discussion named "How will Chinese families diversify, protect and grow their wealth?", Martin commented on the drivers for Chinese clients to engage wealth structuring and the demand for wealth planning. He also mentioned there is a swing among wealthy Chinese individuals from offshore to mid-shore jurisdictions, such as Singapore and Hong Kong. They are looking for structures which stand the test of time.
