Family Finance Seminar Reading

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 13:30 to 17:00

Pump Court Chambers is pleased to invite you to our forthcoming Reading Family Finance Seminar. Our speakers will be providing valuable and in-depth updates for all practitioners at intensive afternoon sessions.

New for this year is a closing Q&A session that gives you the opportunity to have experienced counsel guide you on any technical questions or simply to update you on changing practices. You are therefore invited to submit questions in advance for counsel to answer during the session. We will work through as many as time will permit. Details of the event are as follows:

Guest Speaker: Caroline Bayliss​
Caroline has been a qualified actuary for over 25 years, and has worked in pensions, wealth management, risk management and life insurance across the UK and Australian markets during that time. She is a Director of Excalibur Actuaries Limited, who specialise in the provision of single joint expert pension reports in respect of divorcing parties. She has many years’ experience of working with a wide variety of private and public sector pensions, which allows a real insight into how the often-complex pensions which divorcing couples have built up between them over the years can most effectively be analysed and dealt with appropriately on divorce.
