The award-winning Asia conference returns to Singapore next month (November 7-8) to explore issues pertinent to Asia and its families. Undoubtedly one of the most informative and innovative business gatherings in the trust and funds calendar, STEP Asia offers over two days exceptional speakers, specialist breakout sessions, panel discussions and a vibrant social programme ideal for developing key business opportunities.
ZEDRA is delighted to be one of the conference key sponsors for the second year in a row, the theme of which this year is ‘Shining Light in an Uncertain World,’ and will be on hand to meet delegates and invited guests (including Wendy Sim (ZEDRA Managing Director, Singapore) and Eileen Yee (Executive Director, Singapore) as well as Jacqueline Shek, who recently joined ZEDRA as Executive Director Trust Services, Hong Kong).
“As the industry and economic climate changes along with an ever-changing global regulatory environment, it is good to have an opportunity like STEP Asia, for firms such as ZEDRA to come together to discuss, network, share thoughts and to collaborate with all stakeholders on the future development of the industry”, says Wendy Sim, ZEDRA Managing Director, Singapore.
This year more than 40 key speakers and experts in their field will share their experienced knowledge and insight on a range of topics, including, CRS, beneficial ownership registers, BEPS, cross-border representation for the vulnerable client, the rise of trust services in China and family governance.
John Ashwood, ZEDRA Managing Director, Hong Kong, says, “STEP Asia provides an excellent balance of seminars and speaker opportunities with delegate interaction and networking, underpinned by the sharing of Asia business insight and current trends.”
