A client will expect their adviser to be at the forefront of trust structuring and asset protection strategies. The afternoon masterclass will allow you to learn from the best and teach you the cutting edge strategies necessary to deftly handle complex issues related to testamentary trusts, vesting issues and special disability trusts.

Maintaining and Passing Control of Trusts

This session will look at the key considerations around trust vesting and the steps that can be taken to minimise or avoid potential liabilities.
