Upcoming Events

The next BLBG meeting will be on Tuesday 30th September starting at the usual time of 6:30pm. It will, of course, be at the Radisson Martinez in Ain El Mreisseh.
Glen Richards started Pembroke Associates, who specialise in offering UK-Qualified financial advice to British ex-pats. His company’s specialities include ensuring its clients' pensions are in the best environment and tailored to individual circumstances and objectives with maximum tax efficiency. Glen will talk about his company and how he has grown it from scratch. He will focus on those areas where he believes ex-pats have the greatest needs, with or without UK assets and why expert advice is needed. He will also discuss the implications of recently proposed changes in the 2014 budget, and plans to explain QROPS - Qualified Recognised Overseas Pension Schemes (HMRC approved). For those interested in managing their money, this promises to be helpful and informative.

RSVP can be either via Linked In or by email to Maguy.

We look forward, as always on these occasions, to an informative, enjoyable and lively meeting. As usual, there will be a contribution per person expected of 25,000LL towards the costs of the meeting room plus open bar.
