Bedell Trust to attend STEP Asia 2015

02 Nov 2015

Bedell Trust is once again one of the sponsors at the STEP Asia Conference which returns to Singapore for 2015 and takes place at the Marina Bay Sands from 11 - 12 November, 2015.

Last year the conference attracted 300+ leading practitioners from 32 jurisdictions worldwide. The conference will begin with a discussion of the macro issues affecting the wealth management industry and will examine innovation from practitioners in a highly compliance focused regulatory environment. The second day will focus on the anatomy of the trust, and look into cross border issues, family dispute resolutions, family succession plans and mental capacity issues.

We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you or one of your colleagues. For more information about what Bedell can do for you please visit us at Stand 25 in the exhibition hall or contact one of us if you would like to arrange a meeting.

Robert Ayliffe has recently joined Bedell Trust. Robert, who has been based in Singapore for the past two years qualified as a Chartered Accountant in Jersey in 1996. He spent over 15 years with one of the big four international accountancy firms specialising in financial services and working in Jersey, Kuala Lumpur and London. In 2007 he joined another major group to specialise in trust, corporate and fund administration services, for the last two years concentrating on business development from Singapore.

Following the acquisition by Bedell Trust of a majority stake in Singapore Trust Company, he will be taking up the opportunity to focus on growing these service lines for Bedell Trust and Singapore Trust Company in the Asian region. In that respect he will be working alongside the Managing Director of Singapore Trust Company, Rudy Tan, and with Michael Richardson as Executive Chairman of Bedell Trust, who has led the expansion of Bedell Trust's services in Asia for the past five years.
