Malaysia Private Client
The Virtual Round Table (VRT) series of talks brings together senior industry practitioners to gain insight and understanding on legal, tax and private wealth issues facing HNW clients across Asia, particularly in light of the continuing COVID-19 crisis.
In this VRT we shall consider the application of Malaysia divorce, succession and matrimonial property laws both within Malaysia and also where there is an International element.
Two unique case studies will be considered:
Domestic Case Study
This case study will consider application of Malaysia divorce, succession and matrimonial laws to assets held in Malaysia as well as foreign assets held in the BVI, Singapore and UK.
Interaction of domestic divorce and succession related claims involving a Labuan trust will also be explored. Popular investment migration programs offered in Australia and UK will also be discussed.
Foreign Case Study
This case study will consider emigration from Hong Kong to Malaysia, and the requirements to establish a trading presence in Labuan. Application of Malaysia divorce, succession and matrimonial property laws will also be considered, both in relation to domestic assets as well as assets and property located in Hong Kong and Singapore. The status of trusts established in Singapore and Hong Kong will also be specifically examined.
