To keep you informed and inspired, we host an exciting program of events around the world throughout the year.

Not only do our events educate and entertain, but they are also excellent opportunities for you to meet and exchange ideas, experiences and best practices with your peers.

We carefully craft our events program to address the issues that we know are of most importance to you and your family.

From investment strategy, to business succession planning, to art collecting, to futuristic technologies, we cover a diverse range of topics.

 

 

To deliver many of our events, we partner with world-leading academic institutions, top thought leaders, and influential practitioners. 

The topics really resonated with us, making us think through how we currently operate and how we lay the groundwork for the next generation.
