Following on from our inaugural and highly successful 2018 “Women in Wealth Management” event in Riyadh, this series of events in 2019 builds on last year’s insights.

With the United Arab Emirates and the GCC region seeing continued growth of women’s key roles in the workforce, in engaging and managing wealth and in taking significant financial decisions at corporate level, the series will cover a range of important topics that resonate with women leaders in the UAE.

The event will feature a keynote speech from Sir Anthony Ritossa, Chairman of Ritossa Family Office, Raja Al Mazrouei, Executive Vice President of FinTech Hive at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), and Diana Hamade, Founder and Managing Partner of Diana Hamade Attorneys at Law.

Additionally, the event will also feature a panel session with several leading private wealth experts, who will offer their insights on international trends in regulatory and legal architecture on wealth preservation and structuring and the changes ahead. This will include exchange of information and international fiscal transparency initiatives.

It will also provide an overview on the industry’s wealth structuring strategies for private clients and give our select participants tools to help identify and choose suitable advisory.

Led by our Deputy CEO, Amy Bryant and our GCC-based Director, Ella Moldoveanu, this event offers the opportunity to network with a range of leading members of the Jersey, Dubai and London advisory communities, including wealth practitioners, lawyers, investment managers, fund managers and other finance professionals.

This is an excellent opportunity for the audience to engage with leading industry professionals and to ask pertinent questions in a discreet and exclusive setting.
