‘It’s been a challenging year, with the Brexit vote and uncertainty surrounding the changes to be introduced in 2017 for res nondoms,’ Christopher Edwards says. But despite the Finance Act back-and-forth, clients are more reliant than ever on Edwards’ pioneering cross-border insurance and wealth planning services on behalf of banks, family offices, and international HNWs. ‘We have been fundamentally trying to understand the needs of our clients in order to tailor non-contentious new ideas,’ he says, pointing to the use of ‘investment style insurance solutions that mimic the controlled flow of funds a trust provides.’ These, he predicts, will become ever more useful in succession planning.
