Last week’s ‘China Now’ event, hosted by Private Client Dining (PCD) Club in conjunction with the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB), and sponsored by JTC, was a huge success.
20 delegates from many jurisidictions attended this one day course, held at 12 Hay Hill in London’s Mayfair, to learn more about dealing with UHNW clients in mainland China and its connected international markets of Hong Kong and Singapore. In addition to learning about both the macro and micro economies of this great country, delegates learnt about softer skills, including cultural awareness, business practice and negotiation.
Before the course wrapped up, special guest speaker, Blake Noah of Fine Art Asset Advisory Ltd. led the delegates into an interactive discussion on his own experiences whilst sharing insights on helping clients to leverage the value of their art by advising on and dealing with the associated logistics that need to be taken into account when such fine art is held within a structure – from providence, security and insurance to legal and tax implications.
This was especially pertinent to JTC delegates, as administering illiquid assets such as art is an important part of the company’s service offering.
A networking drinks reception for over 100 guests concluded the event and a short speech from Bo Ji, Assistant Dean of CKSGB, captivated the audience with his extensive wisdom, experience and views about China’s present and future place in the world.
Karen O’Hanlon, Senior Director commented after the event:
“In today’s global hierarchy China plays a crucial part and its importance and prominence will continue to increase over the coming years. At JTC we have strong links into China, not only through our Asian partnership with JTC Kensington, but also through our established relationship with Noah Wealth Management. JTC is delighted to have been able to participate as sponsor. We’d also like to reiterate our thanks to David Bell of PCD Club and to Bo Ji, Jennifer Wang and the team at CKGSB for making this event happen.”
