Over 100 delegates, including some of the leading names in trusts and estates and personal planning, attended the Isle of Man branch of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners’ (STEP) annual conference this month.
Held at the Mount Murray Hotel and Country Club, the event was jointly sponsored by Royal London 360° and Appleby Isle of Man and featured presentations from a range of experts in tax, estates and trust law, trust administration, accounting and financial planning. The speakers were Toby Graham (Farrer & Co), Jeremy Woolf (Pump Court Tax Chambers), Paul de Weerd (Isle of Man Financial Supervision Commission), Nicholas le Poidevin (New Square Chambers), Richard Hay (Stikeman Elliott) and John Spellman (Isle of Man Government).
RL360° Technical Consultant Nicola Holt said: “As always the conference was very well attended, which is a testament to its overall quality.
“It was a fantastic opportunity for members of STEP’s Isle of Man branch to hear what the speakers had to say on some very important subjects facing those in the industry.”
Appleby partner, John Rimmer added: “It was very gratifying to welcome over 100 delegates to the conference, particularly those returning to the conference for a second or third year.”
He continued: “Events like this help to cement the Isle of Man as leading jurisdiction for private client and trusts business and we will continue to work together with STEP to raise the Island’s profile further.”
