Strength in numbers

Being part of a network can be a powerful thing. At Moore Stephens we are lucky to be our own business yet still have access to a wealth of expertise and experience that is distributed around the world in other Moore Stephens businesses.

The power of this network was notably demonstrated at the recent Moore Stephens UK Annual Conference which was attended this year by Sam Bird, partner at Moore Stephens Guernsey and Angus Taylor, managing director of Moore Stephens Jersey. At this event Sam and Angus were able to meet and network with colleagues from across the UK and further afield and hear from expert speakers on a diverse range of interesting and critical topics.

The conference covered professional conduct and ethics and regular visitor to the Channel Islands Hazel Johnson spoke on the challenges of effectively structuring family wealth in the face of changing tax legislation. There was also a focus on property and estate planning, all presented by experts in the respective fields.

Of course, there was also no escape from the topic of data protection, with GDPR incoming, all businesses must be up to speed on best practise, and the conference was a great opportunity to hear from Steve Williams and Fraser Nicol, the Moore Stephens’ networks’ foremost experts on the subject.

Speaking after the conference Sam said: “Keeping our skills and knowledge up to date is an important part of our business growth strategy and being able to call on expert advice and guidance at critical times is real benefit to being part of the Moore Stephens network. It means we can advise our clients with confidence, on issues that otherwise may be complex or difficult, and provide them with a single point of contact that simplifies their experience of meeting their challenges.”
