Vistra Sponsors Launch of IBSA Middle East Branch

The International Business Structuring Association (IBSA) is an international organisation with branches around the globe, dedicated to advancing the practice of international business structuring across multiple disciplines. Its members are drawn from a broad range of disciplines, including banking, accountancy, law, IP specialists, corporate service providers and international family offices.  

On 18 October 2016, Vistra Dubai sponsored the launch of IBSA's Middle East branch, at the Capital Club in the Dubai International Finance Centre.  Other sponsors of the event were IFS Consultants and Bonnard Lawson.  

Vistra is a founding member of the IBSA Middle East branch, which is intended to provide a forum for members to forge strong professional relationships within their jurisdiction, enable them to share updates and discuss best practice developments at a local level, whilst forming part of a greater global community with shared ideals and business values. 

Simon Filmer of Vistra moderated the event and also presented on the UAE as a hub for structuring opportunities.  Other speakers included Dmitry Zapol, IFS Consultants (and Deputy Chair of IBSA), as well as Giovanni Rossi and Ali Kanani of Bonnard Lawson.

The event was well attended by over 50 senior practitioners from Dubai and the region, followed by networking cocktails and canapes to celebrate the launch.
