The featured speaker was Mr. Robert Reymond, a Tax Partner, from the London office of Stikeman Elliott LLP, a leading Canadian law firm. He explored wealth planning for Latin American High Net Worth families, and the value proposition of Barbados in this context. Barbados has an extensive network of double taxation treaties, including with countries such as Mexico and Panama. As the country seeks new opportunities for economic growth (as evidenced by various LatAm Missions hosted by the government), the extent to which Barbados could represent a structuring opportunity for Latin American High Net Worth families was an important topic to be explored. Other issues addressed by the speaker included:

  • Private banking in Latin America
  • Changing client objectives
  • Wealth structuring: Pay tax?
  • Information exchange and transparency: What’s next?

We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to our presenter Mr. Robert Reymond, our committed sponsor Amphora Financial Group and everyone who contributed and attended this event because without you, it would not have been a success.
