We are organizing an upcoming webinar that focuses on sound wealth advice for expatriates from Britain or the United Kingdom in general.
This is a live webinar and will be on 18th February, next Thursday. We will keep it short for 1 hour from 7.30 pm to 8.30 pm.
You can register here.
My colleague Max , our head of expat advisory will be speaking.
Max grew up in Manchester and came over to Singapore, became a British expat about 10 years ago.
Max may still be working in a bank if not for his nasty experience with some very unsound investment products recommended to him.
Instead, he decided that more expatriates should know about the fundamental sound ways to build wealth, setup the life they want to live. (You can also tune in to this interview of Max and myself to know some of his backstory)
In this webinar, Max will be covering:
- UK Pensions: What are the fundamentally sound options (and perhaps the unsound options) for the British expatriates?
- Legacy and inheritance tax: How do you transfer your wealth in the best way possible?
- As an expatriate, what are the sound ways to build your wealth?
- How do make sure you build up enough assets to live your desired lifestyles?
- Do you need wealth advisers and banks or you can do-it-yourself?
The key issue plaguing expats is that a lot of people will preach that your situation is very special and so you will need special insurance, wealth building solutions, with some special structures.
Some of these specific solutions might be applicable for you but a lot of times, what works for us (Singaporeans and PR) in general would work for you as well!
I hope that this session will shed some light on areas that may be specific to you and areas where the wealth industry tend to oversell you.
If you have expatriate friends and colleagues who are from the UK or Australia working in Singapore, this might be something good to bring to their attention.
If you missed this webinar, do let me know via email or comment. If we have another one (or if you have questions pertaining to wealth advisory for expat for Max), let me know as well.
