BFSB Seminar to Focus on Insurance

Insurance as a wealth management strategy will be the focus of BFSB’s next business seminar, scheduled to be held at the Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island, on May 17.

Under the theme *”Insurance: Developing Wealth Management Strategies For The Future”*, the one day seminar, featuring presentations and panel discussions by a number of international experts, will examine the use of insurance as a compliant alternative or supplement to trusts and IBCs.

Seminar and panel discussions will cover products for various markets, product distribution, the use of captives as a wealth management tool for high net worth individuals, and the benefits of insurance as an asset holding vehicle.

Luncheon speaker will be Karl Feitelberg from the Sterling Resources Group, who will discuss international private placement insurance for high net worth individuals.
