Impact of Changes to Companies Act on Trustees & Company Administrators
Thursday 24 August 2017, 12:00 - 14:00

About this Seminar

On 10 March 2017, Parliament passed the Companies (Amendment) Bill whereby extensive changes have been made to some important areas of the Companies Act. A key purpose of these amendments was to improve transparency with respect to the ownership and control of Singapore companies. These amendments therefore impact wealth planners, trustees as well as the underlying companies that they often have responsibility for. This seminar will summarise and discuss the implications that these amendments have for the wealth management industry in Singapore.
