Adviser Edge:
On the Road


We're delighted to be back on the road again. Thank you to those who joined us at one of our September venues. We still have eight events coming up in November, which are still open for registration, and look forward to seeing more of you then for an interactive and in-depth seminar, accredited for 2.5 hours of structured CPD.

The topics our two speakers will be exploring are:

Using trusts for estate and inheritance tax planning

In this very practical and interactive workshop, Paul Lucas will provide a thorough summary of the different types of trusts that can be used for estate and IHT planning. He’ll review the tax treatment of each of the main trust types and consider the pros and cons for various client scenarios. You will learn from realistic case studies that demonstrate the practical application of trusts for IHT mitigation.

Why attend?

  • Understand the tax treatment of different trust planning options
  • Hear the benefits and drawbacks of different trust types
  • Learn practical applications of trust-based planning to use to mitigate your clients’ inheritance tax liability
FCA Consumer Duty – what is that all about?

The implementation of the new Consumer Duty regulation will be felt to some degree by all financial advice firms across the UK. Graham Finlay will discuss all the key aspects, impacts and opportunities of the new Consumer Duty. One of the fundamental impacts he will explore in detail is around assessing the concept of ‘value’ in relation to both your firm and your client.

Why attend?

  • Gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of the new Consumer Duty regulation
  • Learn what you should consider as key in assessing 'Value' in relation to Consumer Duty
  • Identify a strategy to enhance your client communications
