We are delighted to be back in London on Thursday 6th February for a panel discussion on Entrepreneurs & Exit Planning. The event is kindly sponsored & hosted by the law firm Trowers & Hamlins, who are actively involved in assisting HNW clients in growing, expanding & successfully exiting businesses to enhance and preserve their wealth.

After the panel session, guests will have the opportunity to circulate and meet professionals from a variety of specialisms and locations, all of whom serve wealthy international families. PCD Club events are designed to aid networking and maximise business development opportunities in a relaxed and social setting.

We are delighted to confirm the expert panel below to discuss this topic, chaired once again by Ken Chapman of EFG Private Bank:

He was appointed Vice Chairman of KPMG UK in 2004. Since leaving KPMG in 2008, Derek has served as a non executive director of UK and foreign based companies, public and private. He was a member of the Advisory Board of Barclays Wealth and Investment Management and chaired the Advisory Board of Alchemy Partners (A UK private firm) and the board of Seymour Pierce (a corporate and stock broking firm). In September, 2016, Derek co-founded Crossroads Partners, the name chosen to symbolise the situation many entrepreneurs find themselves - the life changing question of what do they do next with their businesses.
