International trusts and estates practitioners working with Latin American clients will meet in Panama next month for the second Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners LatAm conference.
The two-day event follows a sold-out debut conference, which gathered more than 300 professionals from common-law and civil-law jurisdictions last November.
This year’s conference again offers essential information for practitioners and discusses the topical issues in Latin American trusts and estate planning. A range of high-profile speakers are confirmed including the director of the Global Perspectives Programme at Goizueta Business School of Emory University, Professor Jeffrey Rosensweig, who will talk about Europe’s effect on Latin America and the potential of emerging markets, in his keynote address.
“For 10 years, we have heard about the emerging giant economies: the BRIC countries. These four nations are crucial because of the growing number of ultra-high-net-worth families,” Mr Rosensweig said. “We will discuss how they make their wealth and how the uncertain global economy could impact them, as well as looking at Europe’s impact on Latin America.”
Titled “Where Common Law and Civil Law Converge: Combining Knowledge, Improving Planning”, the STEP LatAm conference takes place at the Hotel Riu Plaza in Panama on 27-28 September.
