He will also tackle possible legacy planning approaches art collectors may adopt.

Benjamin Szeto, deputy head of RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s Private Wealth Industry Group, will be speaking at Asian Banking & Finance's inaugural Priority Banking & Wealth Management Conference 2018

In an exclusive interview with ABF, Szeto outlines his experience and business philosophies that drove his corporate life. 

What are your previous experiences and positions held that contributed to who you are as a banker/expert today?

I have 20 years of experience advising HNWIs, entrepreneurs, financial institutions, listed entities and Fortune 500 corporations on a wide range of transactions. These dealings span diverse jurisdictions and include trusts, wealth and legacy planning, investments, real estate matters, acquisitions and divestments, and various deal documentation. I am called to the Singapore Bar and also a Registered Trust and Estate Practitioner of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners. My experience and qualifications allow me to advise and assist clients effectively.

What are your key business philosophies?

I believe that it is paramount for clients to separate their business risks from their family wealth. And to take active steps as soon as possible. 

Can you give us a glimpse of what you will share at the ABF Priority Banking & Wealth Management Conference?

I will be speaking on Monetising Art as an Asset Class: Investment and Legacy Planning Issues. In brief, I will touch on how HNW clients can monetise their art collections and approaches collectors may adopt for legacy planning.
