Aqua on the panel at the 4th GCC Family Wealth Forum in AbuDhabi
23rd May 2017 -Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
The event was well organised and hosted by the Clear View Family Wealth team and supported by Finance Malta and Boston Multi family office as a sponsor. Driven by the success of other similar forums in the GCC region at the end of 2016, this exclusive, invitation-only event covered content relevant to the entire wealth sector: asset allocation, governance, succession planning, structuring a family office, risk, philanthropy, and liquidity events.
Aqua was invited to participate in support of Finance Malta, of whom Aqua is a member. The topics were aimed to address key concerns that Family business are facing. The the level of participation by experts in their field was impressive, making for lively, informative and relevant panels.
Aqua participated on the panel covering ‘Leadership within the Family Business’. This topic is quite often high on the agenda of the families we work with. Joanne was able to address concerns around succession planning and offer first hand experience on how to grow and develop the second generation in a family business. She also talked around the importance of setting up corporate governance structures and the importance of process and procedures which greatly strengthen the Family office Model, allowing consistency and clarity in matters that are handled on a day to day basis.
Over all the participation from the audience was very good and many of the attendees commented on how helpful the event was in having a forum to address challenges and issues they face regularly and learn from their peers in the industry.
