The Fifth Annual Russian Wealth Advisor Forum returns to Zurich, Switzerland in January 2019 at a time when the private wealth world is at a crossroads. Exchange of information and regulation on the one hand need to be balanced with a person’s right to privacy and confidentiality on the other.

Russian clients have never been more international with families frequently having ties – through residence, birth, marriage or investment- to multiple countries and multiple systems of law. At the same time, compliance burden and AML regulations make it increasingly harder for honest tax-paying Russian businessmen to keep their money and investments abroad. Good advice has never been more crucial!

If you did not attend this event before, I highly recommend that you come this year – as an important event in the calendar of the trusted advisors of the Russian international elite, the Forum presents an unparalleled opportunity to find solutions to your clients problems, to exchange knowledge and to create and renew an international network of colleagues and business contacts.

I look forward to meeting old friends and making new ones in Zurich - join us for this memorable event!

With warm regards,
Olga Boltenko
