JAMES SIM, TEP
President of EPC
Our mission is to help families and businesses preserve wealth and strengthen values. Across generations. Across ASEAN and beyond.
It is estimated that as much as 80% of Asia’s wealth will be transferred in next 15 years by the year 2030. It is surprising then that the majority of people have not yet put in place succession plans for this transfer. We frequently come across individuals who have family members and assets in several countries. Without a plan in place, the process of dealing with the individual’s estate becomes complicated, costly and filled with delays.
As a strategic partner of the ASEAN Legal Alliance (ALA), the Estate Planning Council (Singapore) provides:
- Advice and services to families and business on their estate planning needs, and
- Training and education to estate planning practitioners who wish to benefit from the experience of other practitioners from ASEAN and other countries including China, Australia, the UK and USA.
EPC conducts regular seminars and technical workshops for anyone who would like to learn about or engage our advisers on Wills, Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs). We strongly encourage families and businesses to attend some of our workshops to discover their own estate planning needs and to meet other people with similar interests and needs.
