"As an offshore lawyer specializing in fiduciary solutions from Hong Kong since the 1990s, in my view the China Offshore series is one of the best for building networks and reputation among the clients with whom we are keen to work. For local delegates in China it provides a valuable learning insight into the “new world” of sophisticated offshore structuring, and an opportunity to meet leading professionals first hand."
- Leon Mao
Former Head of Trusts & Offshore Legal Counsel
at First Advisory Group
"I think this is the most important summit in the calendar for China. It's a great opportunity for Harneys as a BVI and Cayman law firm because we are meeting people who have clients who have very particular needs of investing their money outbound. It's the networking opportunities and meeting people that is the beauty of this conference. Everyone is here in the knowledge that they should network and it's a very fruitful place for networking. Very slick and well-organized operations and we’ve been very impressed."
- Ian Mann
Managing Partner at Harneys
"The British Virgin Islands, as a leading offshore jurisdiction, has been working with China Offshore to do all our marketing in China since 2011. We have been their top level sponsors of all the well known China Offshore Summits and they have consistently delivered the top delegates at these well-organized events. We have had a great experience and always look forward to working with their great team on future projects/events."
- C. Maritza Mercer
Former Chief Operating Officer
at BVI Finance

About the China Offshore Summit Series

Since the inception of the China Offshore Summit series in 2010, China’s HNWI, investment groups and corporations have developed an ever-increasing need for sophisticated international wealth, immigration tax and asset planning services. This demand, coupled with increasing pressure from local and international taxation authorities for transparency has created a massive gap in traditional offshore planning by local practitioners.

The China Offshore Summit has been designed exclusively by China Offshore & local practitioners to educate Chinese financial intermediaries on the effective use of tax planning and asset management tools available in low-tax jurisdictions.

With an average of over 500 attendees per event, the China Offshore Summit Series will provide a premium platform for information exchange, business development and much-needed education for Chinese intermediaries in this burgeoning market, with a full day of focus on wealth management, a full day on corporate structuring, and China Offshore Shanghai will incorporate an optional additional day focused on immigration by investment.

Nominees for the awards are made by a panel of leading industry experts from a diverse range of disciplines offering unparalleled expertise, making nomination worthy of recognition.
