Gibraltar Finance is sponsoring STEP 2016, in Birmingham on 19th May 2016. Paul Astengo, Senior Executive will lead the Gibraltar delegation.

The one-day conference builds on the topics raised at the STEP Leeds conference in April and provides essential guidance on the current and future developments in tax, trust and estates. The conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza, Birmingham City Centre, B1 1HH. Topics under discussion include Tax Update, Current Will Drafting Problems, Estate Administration Issues, The Inheritance Act 1975, Trustees and the Family Business and Acting for the Older Client. 

Albert Isola, Minister for Financial Services commented, “Our experience of the STEP Leeds conference in April proved very positive and a number of relevant business development conversations have been held particularly around the raft of new and refreshed legislation introduced by this Government since 2011. I am expecting to replicate this at the STEP Birmingham event. We enjoy an excellent working relationship with STEP Gibraltar and attendance at these conferences provides an opportunity to support STEP’s own international marketing initiatives and build a network of regional contacts that will serve us well moving forward. Our increasing focus on regional UK in tandem with our traditional endeavours in London provides greater opportunity to achieve the ambitious targets we have set for ourselves.

Paul Astengo will be based in Birmingham for the week commencing 16th May 2016 attending meetings with relevant contacts and welcomes the opportunity to support other private sector initiatives during this time.
