Jonathan Speck, Senior Partner at Mourant, together with Jon Needham, Head of Trust and Succession Planning for Societe Generale Private Banking – SGPB and Simon Kleis, Head of Private Client Trust for SG Kleinwort Hambros, as well as Melody Munro, Senior Associate at Farrer & Co and Graeme Kleiner, Partner at Charles Russell Speechlys, discuss the practicalities of identifying and eliminating risk in wealth transfer and how to prevent it from going horribly wrong.
