The new company will be launched at the one of the acclaimed International Adviser Magazine Investment Forums, in Hong Kong on Wednesday 2nd November 2011.
This will follow a separate launch at the STEP Asia conference in Singapore on Tuesday 1st November 2011.
Commenting on the launch, Group Managing Director, Stewart Davies said;
“We are delighted to launch this Company to take advantage of the growing opportunities in the International Pension and QROPS (Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme) market.
With a growing number of British Residents retiring abroad and an increasing number of non-domiciled high net worth individuals in the UK, the offering is tailor made for this market segment.
In order to drive the business, we have recruited John Batty as the new Head of Pensions. John was a key figure in the working party that generated the Isle of Man legislation, which received HMRC approval in May 2011.
Given the international nature of the product we have taken the opportunity of launching the offering in Asia, where Kreston International is particularly strong.”
