The BVI House Asia was included as an offshore jurisdiction that offers beneficial structures to help families and corporates in their growing needs for wealth planning and management at the fifth annual Asian Wealth Management Forum 2015. The forum was organised by Hubbis, of which BVI House Asia was a sponsor.

The Forum looked at trends shaping the future of wealth management in Asia, welcoming over 100 CEOs, senior management, and other leading practitioners.

Director of BVI House Asia Elise Donovan said, “We were pleased to be a part of the Asian Wealth Management Forum 2015 this year. BVI vehicles were mentioned as valuable tools for wealth planning and management.

She added, “We hope to continue to educate the market in Asia about the flexibility and innovation of BVI vehicles not just for the traditional setting up of companies, but also for today’s growing needs in wealth planning, asset protection, and cross-border trade.”

The Asian Wealth Management Forum was held at the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, and featured a lineup of world class speakers across all segments of the wealth management industry to share insights delving into different business strategies, the potential of technology, and game-changers in asset management.

At the BVI House Asia table, Elise Donovan, Director of BVI House Asia; Heather Tang, Chief Operating Officer of BVI House Asia; Michelle Georges, Deputy Director of Banking at the Financial Services Commission of the British Virgin Islands (BVI); and Team BVI Asia Member Barry Mitchell, Group Legal Counsel of AMS Trustees, interacted with wealth management practitioners to introduce the presence of the BVI in Asia through BVI House Asia and the use of BVI structures in wealth planning.
