请登记参加我们在 2021年8月5日(星期四)下午3.30(GMT+8)举办的网络研讨会。

Along with the growth of the world economy, Chinese entrepreneurs globally have been creating wealth in the last 20 years. In tandem with that, they have also been exploring a range of diverse investment opportunities. Hence, they have been expanding their corporate footprint via investments into various regions that grew their wealth.

Nevertheless, with the onset of age and as the family diaspora grows across borders, Chinese entrepreneurs increasingly face challenges around the sustainability of cross-border family businesses and asset inheritance.

This panel will discuss cross-border inheritance structure, tax planning, financial planning as well as how entrepreneurs could establish a succession plan that facilitates wealth creation, protection and preservation.

Register now and join us at this webinar on Thursday, 5 August 2021 at 3.30PM (GMT +8).
