We had this extraordinary moment around 2021 where government COVID relief money turbocharged the crypto economy and then we have this present moment where the physical world has taken precedence, most clearly in the armed conflicts underway.
In the shadow of this, we had SBF and FTX rocket to extraordinary heights on the promise of crypto and then collapse for the oldest reasons of all, simple fraud. Ultimately, the basics of planning are still as important as ever. An expert panel debates the risks and certainties of crypto in today’s world.

Specialist sessions


Option 1: Modern families: Provision for polygamous partners, and precedents on parentage

Vicki Ammundsen TEP, Director, Vicki Ammundsen Trust Law Limited, New Zealand
Esmond Brown TEP, Counsel, Appleby, Cayman Islands

Modern family dynamics are creating new precedents. This session looks at some recent cases involving polygamous partners and the conflicts that can arise when cultures clash.

Option 2: Recognising and tackling vulnerable client abuse

Holly Cunliffe TEP, Partner, Aird & Berlis LLP, Canada
Ben Havard TEP, Partner, Collas Crill, Guernsey

As populations globally are getting older, incidences of vulnerable client financial abuse are sadly on the rise. Our panel considers recent vulnerable client abuse cases and what lessons practitioners can take from these to help tackle abuse and protect clients.

Option 3: (Philanthropy) impact for the next generation


There is a knowledge gulf in the private client sector around philanthropy and impact, which is preventing advisors from engaging their clients on these topics despite a clear and growing demand for these services. As a result, clients are missing out on products, services and advice that would allow them to meet their ambitions of having a positive impact with their wealth. We will share practical examples on how some innovative organisations are integrating non- financial outcomes into their products and services and how these can be leveraged to create impact and meet clients’ deeper goals.
