The topic of this month’s update was: Comply or buy?
Allan Christian, Risk Consulting Senior Manager, first covered the implications of recent trends and developments in the corporate governance space for firms continuing in their current form, touching on legal and regulatory developments on the Island, as well as international developments, and the pressure to conform which these ultimately introduce.
Kristan King, Deal Advisory Director, complemented this by covering the range of options open to firms of any size who might choose to explore changes of scale and footprint through mergers or acquisitions, an increasingly active space in the offshore arena given the breadth of economic and political uncertainty on the horizon.
Clare Kelly, Tax Manager, finished up with a session looking at the UK budget and the common reporting standard.
