Join us for the launch of PCD's West Africa Series on Thursday 28 May at 14:00 BST. The webinar series will discuss a range of topics relevant for advisors to HNW clients in West Africa including onshore and offshore tax & legal advisors, local financial advisors, trustees and family offices within the Region and beyond.

Through the series we will tackle the key issues facing local clients including how to navigate investment markets, wealth and succession planning, family governance and much more.
