Michelmores' International Trust Advisory Group returns to host seminar in Grand Cayman

The Michelmores Trust Advisory Group is returning to Grand Cayman for a second year running to host a seminar for Cayman Islands private wealth professionals - the seminar will look at those issues that are likely to be a concern for trustees in the future.

Our International Trust Advisory Group is headed by Jonathan Riley, Jennifer Ridgway and Sacha Pickering who will all be in Cayman for the event.

Jonathan Riley, Head of Private Wealth at Michelmores, said:

“Following the success of our 2018 conference, we are delighted to be returning to Cayman again this year. We continue to see this as an opportunity to strengthen our ties with the many leading lawyers and private wealth advisors in the jurisdiction and look forward to welcoming familiar faces to our event in September.”

Joining Michelmores for the seminar will be William East, Barrister from 5 Stone Buildings and Shân Warnock-Smith QC from ICT Chambers in Grand Cayman. Ms Warnock-Smith is one of the leading silks in her field and will be chairing the event again this year.

William East will outline the importance for trustees of recent developments in the principles of estoppel.  Jennifer Ridgway and Sacha Pickering will explore the legal and practical considerations when dealing with insolvent trusts and how to manage the risks, and with the increasing demand for 'investing for good' Jonathan Riley will consider how trustees might mange questions arising from their involvement in impact investing.

The team will also provide an update on U.K. tax issues for Cayman trustees and will examine a range of planning opportunities for trusts and their beneficiaries.

The event will be taking place at the Kimpton Seafire Resort on Tuesday 24 September and is free to attend. To book a place, please register here.
