the Offshore Investment Conference Shanghai 2012
June 20, 2012 - June 21, 2012
33 Fu Cheng Road
The People’s Republic of China (PRC) has undergone the greatest economic transformation in its history. With such radical changes, we have also witnessed an unprecedented growth in individual wealth of PRC nationals, and in turn, a demand to manage that wealth.
The 3rd Offshore Investment Conference Shanghai reveals the abundance of opportunities in this large and still relatively untapped jurisdiction and offers expert navigation of the multiplicity and complexity of legal and business issues associated with tax, cross-jurisdictional family planning, offshore and onshore structures, wealth succession, philanthropy and personal affairs. Furthermore, an insight into cross-border transactions, investment funds, private equity investing, double taxation agreements and developments in anti-avoidance rules will reveal how to capitalise on this lucrative market.
Day one is all about the Chinese high-net-worth individual and the specific cultural considerations, processes and etiquette. It will examine diverse approaches to developing a sophisticated wealth management strategy for Chinese individuals and family clients. An insight into creative structures and techniques will be provided together with a closer look at private banking and family office arrangements. The new and rapid expansion of Chinese outbound investments and strategies for diversification outside China will be revealed.
Day two will focus on cross-border transactions and how to navigate the complex but rewarding landscape in China. Progress in the liberalisation of exchange control laws will be demonstrated and developments in anti-avoidance rules will be identified together with practical uses of China’s network of almost 100 double tax agreements. Opportunity sectors, political context, practical transaction considerations and challenges surrounding deal making will be analysed and trends in private equity funds and investment funds will be unveiled.
